This exploratory case study evaluates the implementation and use by student coaches of an innovative coaching profiling system, Touch Screen Technology (TST), to assess coaching behaviours. The study was designed to evaluate the potential of this technologically-enhanced assessment system as a profiling option for gathering, storing, retrieving, and presenting data about coaching competences. The case study documents and evaluates trainee coaches’ (N=100) experiences of using TST during an inter...

ABSTRACTThe utility and applicability of research in sport coaching is widely reported to be problematic. This article offers a critical commentary on the factors impacting the potential transferability of research findings into coaches’ practice and into coach education, arguing that a more nuanced appreciation of these factors is necessary. The issue is conceptualized as one of knowledge transfer, and the article examines the roles of the researcher and the practitioner in facilitating researc...

This is a retrospective account of the development of a conceptual framework for sport coaching. The framework comprises an extensive and comprehensive set of constructs and relationships that form a basis for discourse and the conduct of research, education and development. The origins of the framework are identified, within an academic field of study that was under-theorised, under-resourced and displayed ill-defined concepts. The incremental development of the framework is situated within the...

AbstractThe sport coaching construct within mainstream fiction films has been described as stereotypical, reinforcing the traditional notion of the sport coach as a technician who conquers all, or a hapless individual, open to ridicule from athletes and fans. Although this depiction is also prevalent in some independent fiction films and documentaries, film sub genres such as social realism and “fly on the wall” style documentaries move away from the “Hollywood sports film structure” towards sto...

Regardless of our research efforts we seem far removed from consensus or clarity about the nature of coaching and an in-depth understanding of coaching and a conceptual underpinning to inform practice remains absent (Cushion/ Lyle, 2010). With increased research attention on coaching and yet little impact on practice or coach education, this chapter attempts to give an overview and critical evaluation of »what we currently know« about coaching. A critical examination of the field in terms of con...

A defining element of coaching expertise is characterised by the coach’s ability to make decisions. Recent literature has explored the potential of Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM) as a useful framework for research into coaches’ in situ decision making behaviour. The purpose of this paper was to investigate whether the NDM paradigm offered a valid mechanism for exploring three high performance coaches’ decision-making behaviour in competition and training settings. The approach comprised thre...

Recent reviews of sport coaching research (Gilbert and Trudel 2004; Rangeon et al. 2012) identified in excess of 1000 coaching-related publications. Some of this work can be traced back to the 1970s with the yearly publication rate having increased dramatically since then (Rangeon et al. 2012). An examination of this considerable landscape of coaching research reveals a bewildering range of theoretical and empirical perspectives and insights. Despite this apparent depth of empirical work, in-dep...
