Project Title: Social Support in Sport
You are being asked to take part in a research study on social support in sport. My name is Christopher Hartley, and my study is part of an MSc postgraduate dissertation with the University of Stirling. This study is being supervised by Dr. Pete Coffee from the School of Sport. This study has been reviewed and approved by the University of Stirling’s School of Sport Ethics Committee. The data you provide will be kept anonymously, and you will not be personally identifiable from the data you provide.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN
In this study, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire. The first set of questions will ask you about some basic demographic information, and the nature of your sporting habits. The second set of questions will ask you about the support available to you in sport. You will then be asked how satisfied you felt with this support. The last set of questions will assess how this impacts upon your self-confidence and feelings surrounding your sport.
The study typically takes around 10 minutes to complete.
