Hello there #WCR Players, Clubs, Coaches and wider family. I got dropped an email by Ellie Gilbert (please see below) and I’d like you all to take part if you can, to help her out. Over to you Ellie …
Subject: Dissertation Research
My name is Ellie Gilbert, and I am currently completing the final year of my Sports Therapy degree at Hartpury University and I was hoping you could help me to complete my dissertation research.
As a rugby player myself, I wanted to focus specifically on female rugby union athletes for my dissertation, hence why I am contacting you specifically. My topic is: Comparing competitively performing female rugby union athletes’ knowledge, understanding and attitudes towards concussion.
Within this email you should find a link leading to an online Microsoft questionnaire. If I could ask that you share this link with your players so they are able to complete the questionnaire I would really appreciate it.
I really want to be able to provide an accurate representation of the female rugby union population within this topic and to allow me to do so I aim to receive questionnaire responses from female rugby union players from all levels of play. With that being said, if you have any contacts for other women’s clubs or players over the age of 18, please feel free to share the link so that I am able to receive as many questionnaire responses as possible.
Thank you ever so much for taking the time to read this email. If you have any issues or questions at all, please feel free to get in touch via this email address.
