This study is part of a larger scale research initiative at Cape Breton University (Canada), the University of Ottawa (Canada), and the University of Lethbridge (Canada) that seeks to better understand the nuances of Masters sport. In Masters sport, adult athletes (generally 35 years or older) formally register to participate in sport, and their competitions are typically advertised or organized distinctly from competitions arranged for youth, adolescents, or young adults in the high performance stream. Masters sport involves competition, but participants may range from being recreationally competitive to competing at World Games.
In this study, we are interested in understanding your experiences in your primary Masters sport. If you have a coach/instructor that regularly supports you in your primary sport, you will be asked additional questions about the coaching/instruction you receive from this person. Your responses will remain completely confidential, and they will never be shared with your coach. Both coached and non-coached Masters athletes can participate in this study.
