RNZ coach and athlete surveys

  • 01 Mar 2021

Rowing NZ are seeking feedback from the domestic rowing community about our rowing environment. As part of their programme, Rowing NZ's Career Coach participants have created two surveys, one tailored towards coaches, and another tailored towards athletes. Both surveys are anonymous and take less than 15 minutes to complete.

The purpose of this research is to gain a better understanding of the enablers and barriers for both rowers and coaches in our system. For the rowers in particular it is looking at the reasons why you may continue in rowing after school or not. For coaches it is looking to understand what makes an enjoyable coaching environment, whether coaching is a viable career and looking at supporting female coaches.

The Career Coach group will collate findings and present these to RNZ with suggested recommendations.

The surveys are open for all coaches and athletes no matter what age and stage and will close at the end of March.
