Diane loves sharing her passion for physical activity. Through her research and teaching, she promotes healthy approaches to athletic excellence to trainers, coaches and parents. Her primary lines of research she has coined “sports medicine psychology” and “youth sport science” through which she focuses on athletes’ psychological responses to sport injury and the psychological, social and physical health and development of competitive youth sport participants, respectively.  Over the past two years she has headed a federally funded study that involves an exchange of coaching educators focused on training youth soccer coaches in Uganda.
