Abstract [en]

The multi-year psychological research of sports career of more than seven hundred Russian athletes (Stambulova, 1994, 1995, 1996) has demonstrated an essential impact of the athlete-coach interrelations upon the successfulness of the athlete's career in general. At the same time it was shown that these relations underwent changes during the athlete's career. In the wealth of literature on this topic (Csaba, 1995; Liukkonen & Salminen, 1995; Serpa, 1995; Wylleman, De Knop & Vanden Auweele, 1996 etc.) no information was found about the dynamics of athlete-coach interrelations throughout the sports career stages. This has become a stimulus to study this question. On the basis of the previous sports career studies mentioned above and socio-psychological approaches to an analysis of interpersonal relationship (Hanim, 1980) the questionnaire from "Athlete-coach interrelations throughout the sports career" was created. 86 Russian athletes of 19-22 years old (with 36 males and 50 females among them) took part in research sports careers of the subjects lasted 9 years in average. They represented different sport events and levels of sport qualification. Athletes were asked to evaluate retrospectively different aspects or their relations with the coach (coaches) on the following conventionally distinguished sports career stages "the beginning of the sports career:, "the first essential successes", "the culmination" (a peak of personal sport achievement) and "the final stage" (before the termination). The dynamics of the following parameters of athlete-coach interrelations (from the point of view of the athletes) will be analyzed in the report: leadership - subordination; friendliness - enmity; frequency of conflicts; typical reasons of conflicts. Besides, subjects were suggested to answer the questionnaire form "Coach-Athlete-1" (Hanin & Stambulov, 1976) from the point of how they percepted their coach(es) on the every of mentioned sports career stages. This has allowed tracing the dynamics of cognitive, emotional and behavioral components of athlete-coach interrelations throughout the sports career. Results of the study give coaches a valid information about athlete's vision of their interpersonal relations during sports career in the connection with the effectiveness of their cooperation. Possible ways of optimization of the athlete-coach cooperation on the every sports career stage will be discussed in conclusion.
