Ms. Melissa Burns, a Doctoral Candidate in Sport and Performance Psychology at Ashford University, Denver, Colorado, USA, is conducting research in the relationship between Paralympic athletes’ quality of life (QOL) and their coach-athlete relationship (CAR). This will be done using anonymous surveys, and the link to them is provided below.

The participation will only take about 15-20 minutes of time total. The link includes: a consent form (athletes need to be 21 years or older to participate), instructions, and the surveys.

Benefits of participation in this study include aiding coaches, athletes, sport psychologists, and administrators in their understanding of coach leadership, coach-athlete relationships, and quality of life for Paralympic athletes.
