Beschrijving Becoming a Better Sports Coach

Research on coaching education and development highlight, repeatedly, the difficulties of traditional coaching educations to impact coaching practice. Practice seems to be disconnected from scientific theory with few coaches accessing the scientific literature as it too often is presented in dry, academic tones. This volume sets out to provide an integration of theory and everyday practice that to date has not yet been published in the field of coaching science in a volume easily used by sports coaches.


In order to bridge this theory to practice gap, Becoming a Better Sports Coach: Development through Theory Application presents theory and science connected to practice in a way that makes it possible for coaches to test, evaluate, and improve upon their existing coaching practice.


This hands-on approach sets out to improve coaches’ cognition and raising self-awareness as well as improve coaches learning using specific tools for behavioural feedback and reflection. Improving on self-reflective skills and eliciting feedback on the coach’s own behaviour is how coaching practice is improved. What coaching practice includes and what is laid out for coaches in this new text is motivational climate, coaching behaviours, pedagogy, feedback, goal-setting, coach-athlete relationship, and conversation techniques, each in one chapter. Reflection and behavioural feedback are applied to each of these areas.
