Athlete - Coach Relationship

Here is a clip from the Open University and their level 3 course E313 'Exploring psychological aspects of athletic development'. (This is a very good course).

Note the 4 x C's for these concepts in the model. Do these apply to your training relationships you have now or in the past. Think about the successful and less successful coaching relationships you have had and ask yourself if these were there or absent ?

  • Complementarity
  • Commitment
  • Co-orientation
  • Closeness.
(Do you have to have closeness ?).
