Instructions for Administering the Survey
Dear Coach (Director),
Thank you for your participation and help. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to administer. The responsibilities of the person administering the survey are as follows:
Assemble the athletes and give to each athlete the following forms to be completed and returned to you:
Parental Informed Consent Form (parents must sign if athlete is under 18 years
Assent Form (athletes under the age of 18 must sign)
Consent Form (athletes 18 years and older must sign) ***One copy of the form should remain with the parent.
Assemble the athletes at a specified time determined by you and pass out the following items:
Play the audio-tape: The tape will instruct the athletes to mark down specific demographical information (gender, age, ethnicity, and competitive level that they have competed or qualified for).
The tape will then instruct the athletes on how to complete the survey and ask 28 questions for them to answer.
5. At the conclusion of the tapes, please collect all the answer sheets and return them along with the signed Consent, Assent, and Parental Informed Consent Forms in the stamped envelope provided. I do not need the pencils or audio-tape back.
That’s it! Thank you for your help.
