dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study was to investigate different athlete’s perceptions of their coach’s power. One of the main objectives looked at throughout the study was the coach athlete relationship and how the athlete perceived their coaches use of power to affect it positively or negatively. Trazaskoma- Biceserdy et al. (2005) suggest that the coach athlete relationship is important as its nature determines athlete’s performance. Five female athletes were chosen as participants for this study as they all represented their sport at an elite level. Three of the participants were involved in a team sport and the other two were individual athletes. All the athletes were involved in a semi structured interviewed which lasted 30-40 minutes. The interviews included the athletes giving information about their training environment. Questions involved them talking about the relationship they had with their coach. Findings demonstrated that currently all 5 participants had a positive coach athlete relationships, they all stated that this had a positive effect on their performance as they felt more confident and motivated to perform. On the other hand, some of the participants were able to talk about past experiences where they have had a negative relationship with their coach; this resulted in the opposite effect as it had a detrimental effect on performance for many reasons, this left the athlete feeling unconfident and frustrated.en_US
