Can you help with two university research projects?
There are currently two university research projects taking place and the researchers have asked British Taekwondo to put out a call to its members for help.
Find out more about the projects below.
Injuries within Taekwondo training sessions among competitive clubs within Great Britain.
British Taekwondo member Kirsten Barrett, of Momentum Taekwondo and the GB Development Squad, is currently in her fourth year of a Sport Studies degree at the University of Stirling. Her final project is researching injuries within Taekwondo training sessions among competitive clubs within Great Britain.
The purpose of the study is to determine the injuries that occur during WT training sessions, among competitive clubs within Great Britain and determine if they are a result of the coach-created motivational climate or the training practices and health and safety precautions taken by clubs.
You can find out more about study and take part by completing a ten-minute survey here.
The survey closes on Friday 17th March.
For Further information: Kirsten Barrett will be happy to answer any of your questions about this study and provide additional information on results if requested. You may contact Kirsten at Kib0083@students.stir.ac.uk
Gender as moderator of the interaction between the quality of the coach-athlete relationship and the prevalence of athlete burnout in sport.
Amy Shanahan, Club Products Development Officer at British Taekwondo is completing an MSc in Sport & Exercise Psychology at Northumbria University. As part of her thesis project is an investigation into gender as moderator of the interaction between the quality of the coach-athlete relationship and the prevalence of athlete burnout in sport.
As part of the study National Governing Bodies, sports clubs, and universities are being invited to ask athletes to participate. To contribute to the research, athletes must:
- Be 18 years or older.
- Actively competing in an organised sport (club, university, semi/professional level) in England in the 2022/23 competition season.
Participants will be asked to complete an online survey using their internet connected smart devices, which can be found by clicking here, or alternatively, please contact Amy on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Qualtrics link will open to an information sheet that provides an outline of the study, and the requirements to partake.
Completion of the survey should take no longer than 10 minutes.
