Unit 14 - Carrying out a sports-related project
Impact of other project constraints
When you plan your sports-related project, you should think about all of the different factors that can affect its validity, reliability and practicality.
This refers to the accuracy of your results
i.e. do the results truly reflect what you have been trying to measure?
This refers to whether, if you carried out the sports-related project again, you would get the same or similar results
You need to make sure that your project is practical. This means that the project should be something that you will be able to complete, given the resources that you have available.
Ensuring the welfare and safety of participants
When you are conducting your sports-related project, the welfare and safety of your participant is always the most important thing to think of.
There are lots of ways to do this, including making sure that you:
know all of your testing procedures.
know how all of the equipment works.
have done all of the health and safety checks.
have informed all of the participants what will be expected of them and that they have asked any questions about what they are doing

a description of the investigation
the procedures to be followed
an outline of any possible risks or benefits for the participants
an offer to answer any questions they may have
an instruction that they can withdraw at any time
a section that says you will maintain confidentiality at all times
a bit where they sign to say that they are happy to take part
and a section where they say there is no other reason why they should not take part

Store this with your informed consent form and do it before you start the project.
