Athletes Needed to Participate in Research Study
Submitted By Leanne Rollins on Monday, November 10, 2014
The Sport and Performance Psychology Lab at the University of Toronto (Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education) is conducting a 3-year, large scale study of youth hockey in Canada and is asking anyone who is involved in youth hockey - athletes ages 14-19, parents (their children can be any age), coaches, referees, and administrators - to complete an online survey. The surveys ask about positive and negative experiences in youth hockey, stress and coping, coach/referee/administrator burnout, and we also ask about perceptions of the Respect in Sport Parent Program for those who have taken it.

For more information about the study, refer to the posting on the OMHA website: http://www.omha.net/news_article/show/442664?referrer_id=1063069.

The surveys are open for the months of November, January, and April, and each month there will be an opportunity for people to enter their email in a draw for a $50 Sport Chek gift card. With our results we hope to look at changes over time to see if people’s experiences in youth hockey are improving.

At this time, we have had a good response from adults but we are having trouble getting the word out to athletes about the study. We would appreciate if you could let your athletes know about the online surveys, and let them know they can be entered in a draw to win a $50 gift card. The surveys are available for the month of November at: https://www.research.net/s/HockeyStudy.
