Calling Sports Coaches
7th October 2019
If you or someone you know is a coach in your local area, please could I ask you to take a few minutes to complete a coaching survey via the link below or pass it onto coaches and clubs that you work with.
The study is being conducted by a UHI senior student as although much research has been undertaken into how best to coach athletes, very little has been undertaken into how providing an optimal coaching environment impacts upon the coach. All that is required is a one-time on-line questionnaire. All data will be anonymized and used for statistical interpretation only.
Here is a word from the student conducting the study:
This research will investigate how a coach's personality and coaching style may affect their personal well-being. I am approaching this having come from a coaching background myself. I am well aware of the commitment that coaches make for their athletes. I believe that too little attention is given to coach well-being and I hope my research will provide sport administrators with information to develop coach support systems and allow our coaches the freedom to coach while reducing the personal cost that this can involve.
Thanks again for your support.
