Virtual Noticeboard

Our constitution demands that in some cases, notices must be posted for the benefit of the members (usually for 14 days) before they are enacted by the committee at it's next management meeting, or at a general meeting if applicable. These include displaying items such as applications for membership or proposals for the new captaincy. The notices are usually posted on the changing room notice board and this page is simply a virtual copy of that. 

This is a blog page so you can comment on posts if you feel inclined but formal objections should be sent to the Secretary via email or this contact form.
Note: All comments will be moderated by the website administrator before posting.

  • Invitation for research participants

    Author: Neil Pickford |

    15th October 2023

    Hi ,

    I am writing to you as I am conducting some post graduate level research as part of a psychology course at the University of Wolverhampton. It's a study entitled, 'Race against time: Understanding the relationship between adult rowers’ basic psychological needs and their age.' I am inviting any adult members of Cygnet Rowing Club to take part. I would be very grateful if you would use whichever social media group you prefer to circulate details to your members.

    As we get older, we experience many changes. The relationship between our basic psychological needs and adult athletes’ age is not well understood. This study aims to fill that gap. By taking part, you will help us to gain a better understanding of how adult rowers’ need for autonomy is currently being met and whether this changes due to age and other factors. It has the potential to inform coaches and clubs and provide them with information to develop better products for adult rowers.

    If you are willing to support the research, your members will be asked to complete a short questionnaire. The survey concludes with some basic demographic details. It should take no more than about ten minutes to complete.

    I am keen to include as wide a range of active rowers, from all areas, ages, experience and backgrounds as I can. It would be great if Cygnet Rowing Club would be part of that.

    To be eligible, participants must be 18 or over and fluent in English. They should also be active rowers or scullers (on the water on average twice or more every 28 days).

    Please follow the link here or use the attached QR code to become involved.

    I got your details from the British Rowing website. If you are not the right person to receive this email, please accept my apologies. It would be useful if you are able to forward it onto someone more appropriate.

    Please feel free to contact me by replying to this email or at D.A.Houchin@wlv.ac.uk if you have any questions, otherwise, thank you for your time and consideration.

    Best regards

    Dave Houchin MSc, FHEA, CPBP, CMgr FCMI
