Parent Survey

The primary aim of the survey was to understand parents' views of their child’s coach and coaching, with a particular focus on methods of communication and coach-parent relationships.

In 2018, we commissioned an independent survey of parents of children who take part in coached sport and physical activity.

Over 1,000 parents were surveyed from a nationally representative sample. This report presents a summary of the key findings.
