This study draws on Foucault’s views of disciplinary strategies to examine the approaches football coaches use in an attempt to gain athlete compliance. More specifically, it looks at the effectiveness of the compliance gaining strategies adopted by the three participants involved in the research study. Data was collected first through participant observation, with each participant being observed in three separate episodes of coaching. Subsequently, each coach was interviewed, to provide the opportunity to understand the reasoning for using the strategies as well their opinion on their effectiveness. Ultimately, the study found that when the coaches employed these strategies: personal communication, normalisation, surveillance and temporal elaboration of the act they were able to gain their athletes’ compliance. Coercively when the athletes realised that they were no longer under the surveillance of the coach or the tempo of the session had dropped it was evident that the athletes did not comply.
