The coaching professional

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

The structure of sports coaching in many countries is based on a system whose cultural characteristics are fundamentally premised on volunteerism. Within sport coaching currently, it may be more useful to consider professionalism as an ideology rather than a pre-specified condition or fixed state, where any given stance within the profession is inevitably constituted by values and ideologies. However, this overview is not consistent in the global context as the developing profession of sports coaching has to respond to athletes, participants, employers, international structures and shifting market demands.
