Title Malmö Youth Sport Study
Author Peterson, Tomas
Date 2014
English abstract
This paper is on the longitudinal and multidisciplinary research programme Malmö Youth Sport Study. Since 2012, researchers from Halmstad University (HU), Lund University and Malmö University are engaged in a longitudinal and multidisciplinary research project called Malmö Youth Sports Study (MUSSE). The project is a continuation and development of the “Bunkeflo project”, which for nine years examined the relationship between children's health, academic achievement and engagement in sport and physical activity at school. MUSSE studies pupils at the Malmö sporting elementary school (“Malmö idrottsgrundskola”) born in 2000 and 2001. The aim is to investigate the physiological, social and psychological factors that lead to a long and successful participation in sports. MUSSE has a distinctly multidisciplinary design where researchers from a number of disciplines collaborate. The project aims to answer important questions concerning the design and effects of child and youth sport, and implications for both “sports for all” and talent development.
