In conjunction with Loughborough and Staffordshire Universities one of our members Dr Sophia Jowett is conducting research that aims to examine the degree to which coach leadership behaviours and coach-athlete relationships can influence the collective confidence of the players in a team.
For this research they are recruiting athletes from a wide variety of team sports, who play competitively, and ask them to complete a short (15 min) survey about their coaches’ behaviours, interactions and relations. The survey is completely anonymous and players will only be asked for contact details if they wish to be considered for a prize draw to win one of 8 £25 cheques.
If you would be interested in receiving more information please reply to this conversation and I will pass on your details to Sophia. (If not I recommend you check out Sophia’s blog on the importance of relationships here )
Hi I coach Track and fired athletics. It is an invidual sport but all come together as a team for matches.
If my athletes and me 'fit' your criteria, I would happy to reveive more information and may get other coached/athletes at my club to take part.
Hi Ian. I’m informed they are strictly looking for performers/athletes from team sports due to the variables they are measuring (collective efficacy and team cohesion). These don’t “translate” or fit well with individual sports. Thanks for the offer though it’s greatly appreciated!
Put it out to my new club and one got back straight away saying she would be interested - I am sure that others will too.
So please feel free to pass my details onto Sophia
