Would you like your child to be involved in a research study?
The University of Tennessee
Applied Physiology Laboratory

We are seeking 10 – 15 year old children for a research study to determine how children’s ability to complete motor skills (jumping, running, etc.) is related to their physical activity and physical fitness levels.

This study involves two, one-hour sessions at the Health, Physical Education, and Recreation Building (HPER) on the University of Tennessee campus. The children will participate in assessments of motor skills and fitness, complete a questionnaire, and wear an activity monitor for seven days. This research will contribute to the field of motor development in adolescents.

For more information, please contact Emily Post at

Your participation would be greatly appreciated!
