Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Sport and Activity Lab (CASA). The CASA lab is part of the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta. The Lab director is Dr. Nicholas Holt.

The overall goal of CASA is to conduct applied research with the intention of improving the physical and mental well-being of children, adolescents, and their families. Specifically, we examine child, adolescent, and family involvement in sport and physical activity.


  • We conduct applied research and are committed to translating research findings into practice.
  • We take a collaborative approach working with a range of community partners.
  • Our work is based on the values of inclusion, participation and diversity
