Earlier this fall we introduced a new feature where we publicize studies looking for human participants. Once each month, I will put up a post with short descriptions of studies requiring human subjects.
I have two basic requirements. To be included, a study must:
- Have received institutional ethics approval.
- Be related in some way to physical activity, sedentary behaviour, diet, or obesity.
Today I have a study from my colleague Kylie McNeill at the University of Ottawa. The full details can be found below. Kylie is looking for Canadian sport coaches to fill out her online survey (available here). Coaches from other country’s are undoubtedly awesome, but this survey is focused on Canadian coaches.
If you happen to be a Canadian sport coach, please consider taking a moment to complete Kylie’s survey. And if you know a Canadian sport coach, please pass the survey along to them.
Are you a coach of high-level youth athletes? If so, we need to hear from you!
We are researchers from the University of Ottawa and the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences conducting a study on coaches’ stress and well-being. If you coach youth athletes (aged 12-21 years old) competing at the regional, provincial, national and/or international level, and you are currently in-season, we need your help to better understand how coaches manage stressors by completing a brief online survey!
By investing 10-15 minutes of your time, you will assist us in better understanding how coaches can cope more effectively with the demands of their profession in order to ensure their own well-being. An added benefit from your participation may be an increased awareness of your own capacity to manage stressors in order to function optimally in a demanding environment.

Know any other coaches? If so, please forward this email to them!
Please note that the survey is available only in English.
Thank you for your time and participation. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
