This study examined the effects of athletes’ perceptions of the quality of their coach-athlete relationships on athletes’ perceptions of perceived performance. A total of 36 youth team players, aged between 16 and 21 (M = 17.93; SD = 2.64), taken from professional football teams’ academies from within the English Football Association responded to questionnaires measuring the coach-athlete relationship (CART-Q; Jowett and Ntoumanis, 2004) and perceptions of performance (Athlete Burnout Questionnaire; Raedeke & Smith, 2001). Both questionnaires were divided into their individual items to demonstrate any relationships within the variables. The resulting data was analysed using correlation analysis (Spearman Rank Order Correlation) to describe both the strength and direction of the relationships between variables within the study. The coach-athlete relationship was found to significantly relate to athletes’ perceptions of performance with all constructs of the relationship (Commitment, Closeness and Complementarity) producing positive monotonic relationships with several aspects of performance. Furthermore individual differences within each construct were found and demonstrated within the results. The results were deemed to possess theoretical and practical implications that were expanded upon within the study.
