Community Outreach Grant to work with the Scottish Rugby Union

Posted on Tuesday 21st June 2011

Professor Joan Duda, Dr Jennifer Cumming, Mark Holland (PGR student), and Charlotte Woodcock (PGR student) with Dr Lee-Ann Sharp  from University College Plymouth St Mark & St John were awarded $3194.00 USD from the Association of Applied Sport Psychology. Their successful application for a Community Outreach Grant, to work with the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) in 2011-2012 to develop a mental skills training programme for coaches, was further supported by £5400 of funding provided by the SRU.

The planned work follows on from their recent and successful collaboration with the SRU and Winning Scotland Foundation (2007-2010) to develop, deliver, and evaluate a mental skills training programme for talented young rugby players.
