dc.description.abstractIn an attempt to better acknowledge the complexity inherent in sports coaching, this paper presents the metaphor of 'orchestration', derived from the management of complex change, as a more realistic conceptualisation of the activity. The paper served as a precursor to a more detailed portrayal of the coach as orchestrator in a subsequently published book chapter ['The coach as orchestrator' by R.L.Jones and M.Wallace in R.L.Jones (Ed.) 'Sports coach as educator: Re-conceptualising sports coaching', 2006, Routledge]. The paper has potential for changing our thinking about the coaching role and for informing efforts at improving coaching and coach education.en_US
