Sports Psychology Graduate Student Seeking Athletes to Participate in Survey

JFKU_SealHello! My name is Kelly McCormick and I am a graduate student at John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill, CA studying for my masters in Sport Psychology. I am currently doing a thesis in which I am studying athletes who have discontinued at least one sport when they were between the ages of 13 and 17 for any reason at all and have discontinued within the past three years. I am reaching out to see if there are any parents who may have children who have discontinued playing a sport. The participants may still be involved in sport; they would have just had to quit at least one sport. For my study a parent would first need to agree to a parental consent form about confidentiality and the participant’s rights. If there are any parents who have children who would like to participate please click the survey link at the bottom of this letter. Once a parent has agreed to the consent information I will email a link to the survey for the youth participant. The questions in my survey cover current sport involvement and sport history. Also, if there is anyone else that you may feel would be helpful to contact for this information that would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!
