Research Study: Exploring Experiences in Parasport

The Canadian Disability Participation Project (CDPP) and researchers from the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen’s University are working on a project regarding understanding safe sport from a parasport perspective, and are seeking study participants.

They are seeking a broad range of perspectives, including:

  • Athletes
  • Coaches
  • Program coordinators/managers
  • Sport administrators
  • Centre for Advanced Computing | Accelerating the pace of Canadian ResearchPersonal and health support
  • Classifiers
  • Family members

Individuals who participate will be invited to engage in one-on-one interviews to define, discuss and understand safe sport from a para perspective, and seek to identify strategies for creating positive and safe sport experiences. All responses will be anonymous and confidential, and participants will receive $15 for participating in the interviews.

Participants must be 18 years or older, must have been in their role in the parasport system for at least 1 year, and athletes must be ‘classifiable’ according to International Paralympic Committee standards.
