Abstract Submission: May 31-July 2

Abstracts are limited to 250 words and should include a brief introduction/literature review, description of the methods and results, and a discussion/conclusion. Data-based abstracts are required for submission. Given the anticipated slow-down in data collection activities due to COVID-19, partial data sets at the time of abstract submission will be accepted. Authors must indicate they are on track for a full data-set presentation at the time of the conference, and will be required to update their abstracts at a later date before the abstracts are published in the Journal of Exercise, Movement, and Sport.
