Social Value and its Measurement in the Third Sector
Konov, Jaroslava ; Dohnalová, Marie (advisor) ; Šteffl, Michal (referee) ; Průša, Ladislav (referee)
The research "Social value and its measurement in the third sector" is focused on measuring the social value of social enterprises, which form part of the conceptual framework of the third sector. Social enterprises currently face the challenge of assessing and measuring social value (social impact). Demonstrating social value is required by many stakeholders, including social enterprises themselves. There are many approaches to measuring social value, but none has been widely adopted, and the field is characterized by methodological pluralism. In the Czech Republic, the area of social value measurement in the third sector is still under-researched, despite the current political and economic climate, where stakeholder demands for indicators that can capture the performance of organizations are increasing. As in other countries, there is no uniformly accepted tool for measuring social value or social impact. The main objective of the research, which is divided into two sub-research "Measuring the social value of social enterprises" and "Longitudinal study", is to measure the social value of social enterprises in the Czech Republic and to perform their mutual comparison (benchmarking). The sub-goals are to monitor the development of measurements and changes in the social value of a selected social...

Sidunov, Matěj ; Pádecký, Jan (advisor) ; Šteffl, Michal (referee)
Title: Risk factors of upper limb injuries and relationship between general physical characteristcs and punch force in martial arts. Objectives: The master thesis has two objectives. First, to find out the possible performance and morphological predictors of upper limb fractures in martial arts participants. Second to find out the performance and morphological predictors and their magnitude of punching force. Methods: In our thesis we used a logistic regression to find out the strength of the predictors of upper limb fracture. On the retrospective history of fractures, the participants were asked, if they have had any upper limb fracture. Furthermore, Pearson's correlation coefficient and linear regression were used for the strength of the predictors of punching forces. Results: We found out, that none of the predictors of upper limb fractures were signiciant. Furthermore, the overall model was not significant as well (p = 0.064, R2 McF = 0.199). Linear regression for the prediction of punching forces was statistically significant (p <0.001, R2 = 0.672). The strongest predictors were handgrip strength and peak concentric fore during a push-up jump (both p <0.05). Keywords: martial arts, mixed martial arts, injury, punching
Sports preparation of para hockey players in Czech Republic
Gojová, Barbora ; Šťastný, Petr (advisor) ; Šteffl, Michal (referee)
Title: Sports training of national Para ice hockey team players in the Czech Republic Results: Using theoretical knowledge, questionnaire survey and based on interviews with the coach of the para hockey team of the Czech Republic, to describe the current level of sports preparation of para hockey players in the Czech Republic. The sub-goal was to design suitable exercises on and off the ice. Method: Within the theoretical part, a method of literature research was chosen to present basic information about para hockey and its training in the Czech Republic. The research was conceived as mixed. The methods of data collection were a questionnaire and a semi-structured interview. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data. In the case of open questions and interview analysis, the method of creating clusters was used. Results: Training units are insufficient in terms of complexity, lacking, for example, a focus on endurance and training of game skills. Hockey clubs lack a sufficient number of off-ice training units, there is no recovery and rest plan, and very little emphasis is placed on compensatory training. The absence of individual training is also problematic. Training in the season focuses mainly on shooting and passing practice. There is a lack of training of other important techniques,...

Sádecká, Kristýna ; Malá, Lucia (advisor) ; Šteffl, Michal (referee)
Title: Changes in motor skills during ontogenesis in young children of schoolage. Objectives: The aim of the work was to identify changes in movement abilities during ontogeny in sports children of younger school age. Methods: This work is processed by the method of data analysis, which we drew from the available literature, documents and professional articles. We also used the method of comparison, which was used to compare the data with the data we obtained from the elementary school Benešovo nám. and further compared them using graphs and tables. The research from the obtained data is carried out from the first stage of primary school, specifically from the 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade, and consists of tests for long jump, sprint for 60 m and throwing a ball. Here we used basic statistical characteristics such as arithmetic mean, standard deviation. Results: As a result of the work, the first hypothesis of non-linear change in the 60m run test between 3-5 was not confirmed. class. For the second hypothesis, smaller gender differences in the development of speed skills than in strength skills were confirmed. By evaluating for practice, we can say that children's motor skills change and it is important to focus on them individually. The development of individual abilities is very important and the...

Votroubková, Eliška ; Šteffl, Michal (advisor) ; Kinkorová, Ivana (referee)
Title: The relationship between physical activity and memory in older adults with or without diabetes. Objectives: The main goal of my diploma thesis was to determine the effect of physical activity on memory in people over 65 with and without diabetes. Another goal was to find out how much influence the level of education has on the results of memory tests. Methods: This diploma thesis is designed as a cross-sectional study that processes data from the sixth wave of the international project Survey of Health, Aging and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). The Mann-Whitney U test was used for hypothesis testing in two-category tests. For testing hypotheses with more than two categories, the Kruskal-Wallis test with subsequent post hoc analysis by Mann-Whitney U test with Bonfferoni correction was used. The tested files are described by basic statistical indicators. Population histograms and error bar graphs were used to graphically represent the test results. The data were processed in the statistical program SPSS from IBM and in Microsoft Excel. Results: The results showed a statistically significant positive effect, either for "sports or activities that are vigorous" or for "activities requiring a moderate level of energy" for results in the test of immediate and delayed memory of 10 words. All tests...

Lukavský, Jakub ; Malá, Lucia (advisor) ; Šteffl, Michal (referee)
Title: Body composition changes during ontogenesis in youth football Objectives: The aim of the work was to identify and compare changes in body composition during ontogenesis in youth categories in football. Methods: Due to our work, a research group was created, which included 4 different age categories. It was a category U12 - U15. U12 (n = 15), U13 (n = 18), U14 (n = 19), U15 (n = 16). He is a player of an elite Czech club. The selection of probands and age categories was intentional. Body composition measurements were performed with a multi-frequency bioimpedance analyzer (Tanita MC-980MA, Tanita Corporation, Japan). The biological age was estimated as follows. The equations of Mirwald et al. (2002). Y: -9.236+(0.0002708*Leg Length and Sitting height interaction) - (0.001663*Age and Leg Length interaction) (0.007216 Age and Sitting Height interaction) + (0.02292*Weight by Height ratio). The players were divided into two groups according to the degree of maturity (before 1, circa 2 (PHV)). Group 1 included players from (> -1 before PHV) and group 2 - circa PHV (-1, +1). Results: The changes in the basic somatometric indicators - body weight and body height were as follows. Body weight: U12 (38.2 kg), U13 (41.4 kg) + 8%, U14 (46 kg) + 11%, U15 (55.1 kg) + 20%. Body height: U12 (148.4 cm), U13...
The influence of the menstrual cycle on eating habits and the need for sports activities
Jelínková, Karolína ; Jaklová Dytrtová, Jana (advisor) ; Šteffl, Michal (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the topic of the influence of the menstrual-ovulatory cycle on the diet and physical condition of women. Countless studies in the field of training deal only with the male population, as the cyclicality of women is a complex and still not sufficiently researched topic. Because changes in hormone levels further cause various changes and reactions in tissues and organs, it is necessary to take into account the cyclicality of women in sports training, diet or other areas. Fluctuations in hormonal levels also cause psychological and emotional changes. In this work, a search is made of suitable studies together with known facts on this topic. The first part includes the description of the cycle itself and the second part the analysis of generally known nutritional recommendations. Thus, it cannot be assumed that women's activity is unchanged throughout the menstrual-ovulatory cycle. We created a table that monitors the sleep, diet, drinking regime, physical activity and emotions of women during the day, throughout the menstrual / ovulatory cycle. These elements are important for further research into female variability. It is important for women to understand their cycle, as it has an impact on the overall functioning of the body. During the cycle, changes were detected in...
