The goal of ARCAA is to continue to fill the void between research in the field of athletics through dissemination of information to those who can best utilize it in a practical setting, including coaches, athletic administrators and interested educators. The journal style will emphasize the use of lay terminology that can be understood by both professionals and those who are associated with the field through personal interest, thereby requiring the simplification of the interpretation and discussion sections of research reports to facilitate understanding by a broad readership.

This philosophy will facilitate the goal of ARCAA which is to communicate and stimulate thought by applying research to current trends in coaching and athletics. To accomplish this purpose, clarifications of applied research projects, theories and concepts will be disseminated to coaches and the general readership.
