Increase Your Awareness!  The Impact of Body Image on the Retention of Adolescent Female Athletes Girls continue to drop out of sport at higher rates than boys. Research led by Dr. Catherine Sabiston at the University of Toronto, discovered that weight commentary and body talk from parents, peers, coaches, teammates and opponents, all contributed to poor sport experiences, ultimately leading to drop-out. This webinar will discuss the research findings and provide recommendations for coaches and other sport leaders to help reduce body image challenges.
