UHI Questionnaire: Closing date – Tuesday 26th January. Shinty Injuries and Risk Reduction strategies student dissertation.


The Camanachd Association would like to request the Shinty Community’s support for this UHI dissertation questionnaire.

Hello, my name is Laura Aiken and I am a 4th year Sport and Fitness Degree student at the University of the Highlands and Islands currently working on my final year dissertation.

I have been involved in Shinty for a number of years as a player and coach and for my dissertation I have chosen to look at the injuries experienced within Shinty, to assess the most common injuries and review the current risk reduction strategies in place.

As part of this assessment, I am collating information on the current injuries being suffered by Shinty players during training and games. To help gather information for this assessment I have chosen to do a questionnaire which usually takes around 10 minutes to complete.

All players, coaches, physiotherapist or officials involved within Shinty, with a current knowledge of injuries experienced and over the age of 18 can take part.


Your participation within this questionnaire is anonymous and is greatly appreciated as it will help generate information for my dissertation and will increase knowledge of Shinty injuries and risk reduction strategies.

Thank you to everyone who takes part and the Camanachd Association for distributing my questionnaire.

The closing date for the questionnaire is 26th January 2021
