The University of Ottawa is conducting a research study concerning life skills development through high school sport. OFSAA supports this research as we strive to promote the educational benefits that student-athletes can gain from high school sport.
The study for teacher-coaches consists of completing an online questionnaire at three time points over a six-week timespan. The questionnaire takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, for a total of 30 minutes. In addition, coaches may be asked to complete an online life skills training workshop (90 minutes) and to provide their opinion on the workshop.
Coaches who complete the survey at all three time points will be eligible to win 1 of 2 iPad Mini 4 (value $549.00).
