dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research study was to further explore notions of care within a sporting context. More specifically, it was to, highlight coaches’ thoughts, feelings and experiences of care within their practice. The data were collected through semistructured interviews with three coaches all of whom operated at a university standard. The approach taken allowed for a detailed investigation into coaches’ perceptions of the notion of care within the sporting environment. Noddings (1984, 2003, 2005) work on care in an educational setting, and Jones (2006b) writings on care within sports coaching were used to theories and make sense of the data. The findings illustrated that coaches engage in caring acts within their practice and suggested the need and appreciation for a reciprocal relationship with importance placed upon caring for individuals within a team or group setting. Future research could explore the micro interaction that take place within the coaching environment with importance placed upon how the notion of caring affects athletes, and if they perceived the care shown within the practice.en_US
