Podium Analytics is launching a survey to find out if and how PE teachers and sports coaches manage young people's workload in the context of sport at school, and their perception of whether it can be done effectively in the school environment to reduce injury risk and improve young people's overall experience of sport and physical activity.
Our findings will inform a major new project on workload, adaptation and injury in sport which, with insights gained from the school environment and experts in the field, aims to establish a set of guidelines and consensus for PE teachers and sports coaches on workload management in grassroot sport.
The project will consider the current state of grassroots workload management in grassroots sport, and how best practice could be translated into school and club environments.
We need your help!
We are inviting PE teachers, Heads of PE/Directors of Sport and sports coaches teaching PE and/or sport in secondary schools or sixth form colleges to complete a short survey that will only take 10 minutes.
The survey features questions on current and past school experiences, PE and extra-curricular activity structure and participation, and confidence in managing workload at school.
For this survey, workload in sport means the activities in PE and sport that young people are doing, (including how much, how long etc) and the efforts needed to do them. Workload management is defined as the monitoring, reducing or varying of activities and recovery, to reduce injury risk and improve their overall experience of sport and physical activity.
