Coaches' Coaching Competence in Relation to Athletes' Perceived Progress in Elite Sport
Moen, Frode; Federici, Roger A.
Journal of Education and Learning, v2 n1 p240-252 2013
This article looks at whether higher levels of perceived coaching competencies focusing on relational issues, were associated with higher satisfaction among elite athletes with their progress in sport. In order to explore this, we investigated elite athletes' perceptions of their coaches' coaching competence (CCS) and how these perceptions related to their own satisfaction with their progress in sport during the last year. The CCS measures core competencies for coaches as defined by the coaching profession (Moen & Federici, 2011). Our hypothesis was partly confirmed as the results revealed that higher perceived coach competencies were associated with higher athlete satisfaction with their progress in sport. This result applies for all the five dimensions of the CCS. However, the group of athletes who are most dissatisfied with their progress in sport do not follow this trend, as they in general score higher on the different dimensions of the CCS compared to the nearby levels.
