Do you coach or does your child play sport?

Research Title: Wanting the best support for your child/athlete

Department: Sport and Exercise Science

The Department of Sport and Exercise, with Professors Chris Harwood (Loughborough, UK) and Judy van Raalte (Springfield, USA), is conducting a study to understand the relative importance of attributes that parents and coaches may consider when seeking the services of a sport psychologist. This is part of a broader programme of work looking at consultant services, consultant training, and public awareness to the role of sport psychologists.

If you are either a coach or a parent of a child who participates in sporting activity, we would be grateful if you could help with our research by taking part in this survey.
