University of Toronto Research Study
Submitted By Tiffany Hart on Thursday, November 27, 2014
Researchers in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education at the University of Toronto are conducting a research study to examine youth hockey in Ontario and across Canada. Online surveys with athletes, parents, coaches, referees, and administrators will be used to study experiences in youth hockey.People who participate in the survey will be entered in a draw to win a $50 gift card from Sport Chek or Hockey Life. The survey is available at:https://www.research.net/s/HockeyStudy


Online surveys will ask about athletes’ experiences in sport, spectator behaviours, coping with stress,enjoyment, and commitment. Parents, coaches, referees, and administrators will be asked about their hockey experiences, including stressors, coping, burnout, and commitment.

This study is being conducted independently at the University of Toronto, led by Dr. Katherine Tamminen. The OMHA is supporting in creating awareness about the study for those who might be interested in participating, but is not directly involved in the study or data collection/analysis of results. The study has been approved by U of T’s Research Ethics Board and it is regulated by strict ethical standards regarding participants’ confidentiality and anonymity. The OMHA will not know who did or did not participate in the study. Any questions about the project can be directed to Dr. Tamminen at [email protected] or [email protected]
