dc.description.abstractThis study builds upon existing research into complexity of sports coaching by highlighting three key themes believed to be linked to becoming an effective coach. The three key themes include; reflective practice, the coach athlete relationship and the coach as an orchestrator. The research for this study involved individual semi- structured interviews with four elite level coaches. The interviews were recorded and transcribed in order to discuss and relate the data to literature related to this topic. The study revealed a high correlation to literature (Boyd and Fales, 1983; Elliot, 1991; Gilbert and Trudel, 2001; Gibbs, 1988; Jones et al., 2003, 2004, 2006; Kemmis, 1985; McFee, 1993; Potrac et al., 2002; Saylor, 1990) suggesting that coaches believe that reflective practice, the coach athlete relationship and the coach as an orchestrator include strong acquaintance and are areas to address when developing a coach. The qualitative data obtained further provides a more insightful and critical understanding of the holistic nature of the coaching process.en_GB
