dc.description.abstractThis paper firstly aims to conceptualise Rogers (1961) three core conditions of care within the coach-athlete relationship. It is important to note that Rogers framework cannot be methodically shadowed to create 'care' within a relationship, it is the responsibility of the coach to consciously provide care, whilst the athlete must want to accept the care given. On top of this, many interactions that could classify as 'caring' within a relationship often occur within the subconscious realm of thinking, without the coach/athlete realising or understanding its occurrence. The paper will also look to understand how Rogers framework of care can be adapted within the coach-athlete environment, suggesting how although the use of therapist-patient interactions can be of use to explain sociological phenomenon within the coachathlete relationship, the relationship within the studied sporting environment can change due to its dynamic footings within the social world. It was found that for a relationship to be regarded as 'caring', a coach has to be prepared for the reality that athletes will bring 'baggage' into the environment they both operate within, creating a space for individual beliefs and values. However, creating a space like this opens the coach up to access of 'guilty truths' that in some cases, although privileged to the information, can affect their ability to perform as a coach. Due to the socially situated nature of coaching for care to be valued within a relationship, coach and athletes beliefs and feelings have to be exposed and aligned for care to form within the relationship, suggesting the importance of coach-athlete interaction (Jones, 2000).en_US
