Relationships in Youth Tennis

Participation in youth tennis can be a stressful experience not only for athletes, but for their parents and coaches. Research has shown that positive relationships between parents, athletes, and coaches can improve athletic experiences. However, there is limited research which has gathered the perspectives from all members and looked to understand the nature of these relationships. Ultimately, this research aims to improve the experiences that parents, athletes, and coaches have by facilitating positive relationships in youth tennis.

If you believe you meet the criteria for this study and are interested in participating, please contact the lead investigator: Ella Williams |
