Abstract
Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate similarities and differences for 18 sports toward canoe/kayak in order to identify donorsport and/or multisports, based upon a systematic analysis of the task constraints per sport that are assumed to be either crucial or less important from the coaches' viewpoint. Design: Descriptive survey analysis. Methods: 891 certified coaches from 19 sports valued (0-10; not important at all-very important) 15 characteristics by a questionnaire (Flemish Sports Compass) within their sport. Unique sport-profiles (discriminant analysis - DA) were constructed for 19 sports based on these characteristics. Similarities and differences between canoe/kayak and the other 18 sports were analyzed by means of MANOVAs on anthropometric, physical and motor coordination characteristics. Results: Cross validated DA (rcan = 0.660, Wilks' Lambda = 0.564, p < 0.001) showed that 72.1% of the canoe/kayak coaches were correctly assigned to their sport. For canoe/kayak seven characteristics were valued crucial; dynamic balance (8.51 1.69), core stability (8.45 2.27), pulling power (8.12 +/- 1.68), speed (7.54 +/- 2.07), endurance (7.27 +/- 2.03), stature (6.43 +/- 1.41) and rhythm (6.01 +/- 3.01). Least important characteristics were: flexibility (6.16 +/- 1.75), agility (4.27 +/- 3.10), catching (3.90 +/- 3.22), climbing (2.45 +/- 3.05), jumping (1.81 +/- 2.11), throwing (1.60 +/- 2.24), hitting (.94 +/- 1.77) and kicking (.61 +/- 1.04). Conclusions: This novel approach to determine important characteristics per sport makes identifying similarities and differences between sports possible. Similarities might enlarge talent-pools for possible talent transfers. Differences can help identify sports based on complementary characteristics for the construction of broad motor development programs. From this viewpoint gymnastics can serve as potential donorsport (similarities) for canoe/kayak, while handball and tennis can subserve broad development for young canoe/kayak athletes.
