dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper was to present an autoethnographical account of myself as a coach in an attempt to make sense of my coaching experiences. In particular, it offers an investigation into how reflective practice can have an impact on a soccer coach in order to develop coaching competence. The raw data was made up of observations and reflective note-taking for a period of three months. The data was then amalgamated into five narratives. The narratives focused on the key critical incidents which I experienced within the coaching realm. Specifically, it provided a clearer representation of what practitioners have to deal with when coaching and with the use of reflection how it can facilitate understanding. The findings are primarily theorised by Goffman (1959, 1969) and Denison’s (2002) notions of ‘front’ and power to help guide the reader and interpret the writer’s tale.en_US
