Coaching is a central issue in sport at all levels. This ground breaking new text is the first to offer a comprehensive introduction to the conceptual issues that underpin sports coaching practice, and to provide a complete conceptual framework for understanding sports coaching. The analysis presented within the book is practice-orientated, exploring the language of the coaching process in order to define the role of the coach and to better understand the relationship between the coach and the sports performer. Sports Coaching Concepts introduces the key issues behind every stage of the coaching process, presenting important new material on topics such as: - the historical and international context of the development of sports coaching - the role of the coach - participation and performance coaching modes - modelling the coaching process - coaching 'style' and 'philosophy' - decision-making and regulating the process - social factors influencing practice - the future of coach education. The book draws together the existing sports coaching literature for the first time, setting it against important new conceptual developments, and promises to have a profound influence on the nature of our coach education programmes. Sports Coaching Concepts therefore represents essential reading for any student of sports coaching and any serious coach wishing to develop and extend their own coaching practice.
