that this is completely voluntary and anonymous. There is no pressure on the subjects. I will be happy to have as many surveys as possible from your team. All the questions are easy to understand and will be asked via audio-tape. Although you will be given a copy of the questions asked on the survey, it is important that you do not discuss them with the gymnasts. They must answer the questions completely on their own. There are no right or wrong answers to this survey.
