Hi, my name is Tara Collins. I am currently in fourth year in Professional Communications at Ryerson University.
I decided to research the sports industry field and create my project about the growth of Canadian Basketball, specifically focusing on Toronto as the main hub for producing high level players. Not only was the research about how to coach youth to ready them for the next level, it was also about the impact sport has on youth mental health and success in education. I mainly did qualitative research which included a lot of ground work and varying levels of interviews, focus groups and surveys.
