Prompting Athlete Self-Reflection for Performance Readiness During the Menstrual Cycle


The Doyle-Baker Lab is looking for healthy, female USPORTS athletes aged 16-28 years that are interested in participating in a study involving personal reflection of the menstrual cycle for increasing performance readiness.
The study goal is to understand how athletes might prepare for training and competition during the different phases of their menstrual cycle.
You will fill in two surveys.
The first survey takes about 20 minutes and is your background information. This will tell us a little about you, your sport and menstrual cycle. The second survey takes about 10 minutes and we ask that you complete it once a week after either a training or competition day. It is a reflection of how you felt. You will need a mobile device to complete the surveys.
