Martin Camiré

Biography

Martin Camiré is an Associate Professor at the University of Ottawa’s School of Human Kinetics. Through his research, Dr. Camiré is interested in examining how positive youth development can be facilitated in the context of sport. Further, Dr. Camiré studies the role played by coaches in facilitating the development and transfer of life skills (e.g., goal setting, leadership, effective decision-making) in youth sport participants. His teaching interests lie in the areas of intervention, health promotion, and research methods.
