About My Blog: One Sport Voice
This blog reflects my critical perspective and voice on all things sport (see the “critical” link to find out more about this perspective). A critical perspective is not the same as being critical. The name choice for this blog is personal and intentional—LaVoi (pronounced La Vwah) means “the voice” in French. Therefore I am literally and figuratively—One Sport Voice. I am a critical thinker, scholar, and researcher of girls & women in sport, youth sport, and coach & sport parent education.
My goal with this blog is to perhaps help readers see the issues I write about with a different perspective (not necessarily one that you agree with) and to provide those who have a similar perspective a place to find a kindred spirit. It is a place for me to explore ideas. Although I am one voice, many of the ideas in this blog begin with conversations with colleagues, friends, undergraduate and graduate students, and family, or an observation that usually starts with “Can you believe that…?” or “Really? Again!” or “Did you see…?”. This blog is also about disseminating research information in a more timely and accessible way.
Views expressed in this blog are mine alone and do not necessarily reflect the beliefs of the U of M, my graduate students, the Tucker Center or the MNYSRC. If you would like to re-post material in this blog, please include the link and ©2009 N.M. LaVoi.
