Abstract

The aim of this research was to determine the extent to which a player’s (N = 2310) decision (retention motivations1) to not return to RL in 2017, was influenced by four main experiences, being: coaching, playing, club and socialisation. A mixed methods (quantitative and qualitative) approach was employed to investigate possible associations. Findings from this study provides a comprehensive ‘snapshot’ of the current RL landscape, linking Junior (n = 1804) and Senior (n = 506) players’ experiences (2016) to retention rates (2017). A summary of results and potential recommendations are presented in this report, with the aim to draw attention to some of the more important patterns of associations between the four measurable experiences (coaching, playing, club and socialisation) and players’ retention motivations.
