Participation in student sport and study performance

International, mostly North-American, research has shown a positive relationship between participation in student sport and study results (e.g., higher grades and less drop-out).

To find out whether the same relationship can be found in Dutch students, five University Sport Centres (USC) in the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Leiden, Wageningen and Enschede) have asked a team of researchers in Amsterdam and Wageningen to investigate the relationship between USC participation and study results in the Netherlands.
