Introduction

The purpose of this survey is to gather information around your competition experiences as a parent/carer and in some cases as a spectator.  The survey focuses on three areas;

· Providing some initial context to your experiences
· Reflections on your previous competition experiences
· Thoughts on how you would like to see things taken forward in the future, beyond COVID-19
 
The information provided will help to inform the development of competitions and the competition planning process within Scottish   Swimming, from club competition through to National championships.

Your responses will remain anonymous unless you choose to provide your email address at the end of this survey.

Please complete all sections of the survey, providing as much detail  as possible.  The survey should not take you any longer than 30 mins to complete.

Many thanks for taking the time and contributing positively to the shaping of the approach to competition in the future.
