Section 1: Description & Consent
My name is Michael Jeffress. I have been researching and writing about powerchair football since 2006, when my son, Ryan, discovered the sport and began playing for the Tidewater Piranhas. I am also a Lecturer in Communication Studies at The University of the West Indies in St. Augustine, Trinidad. I have put together a brief survey for athletes ahead of the 2017 FIPFA World Cup.

I am requesting your participation, which will involve you providing some basic information about yourself and then answering nine (9) questions related to your experience as a member of a national powerchair football team. The time to complete this questionnaire will vary depending on the level of response you give to the open-ended questions. The questionnaire, however, is designed to take about 30 minutes to complete. Your participation in this study is voluntary. If you choose not to participate or to withdraw from the study at any time, there will be no negative consequences. If at any time you discontinue the survey, your results will be discarded. The results of the research study may be published, but your name will only be used if you give permission. If you do not give permission for your name to be published, then a pseudonym will be supplied for all references to you in the study.

The risks of the study are that people may discover your identity even if your name is not used because of the small number of teams and players involved in this study. The potential benefits of the study include allowing the voice of powerchair football athletes to be heard by a broader audience, promoting the sport of powerchair football by having the survey results published, encouraging people with physical disabilities to discover the benefits of powerchair football for themselves, and stimulating further interest in the academic community to research the sport of powerchair football to create better understanding and promote greater accessibility and social justice for all.

If you have any questions concerning this study, please call me at 1-985-647-1737 or e-mail me at michael.jeffress@sta.uwi.edu.
