carnegieXchange - Spending time with coaches in situ: what we can learn about coaching, and researching coaching, from ethnographic case study research.


There is growing recognition that understanding the complexity and difficulty of sport coaching does not lend itself to overly simplified or reductive research approaches e.g. quantified observational and self-report questionnaires, or indeed, one off qualitative interviews – although these methods have their place for particular research tasks.

carnegieXchange seminar with Dr Julian North

There is growing recognition that understanding the complexity and difficulty of sport coaching does not lend itself to overly simplified or reductive research approaches e.g. quantified observational and self-report questionnaires, or indeed, one off qualitative interviews – although these methods have their place for particular research tasks. This presentation makes the case for intensive (Sayer, 2000) long term ethnographic case study research of coaching practice and effectiveness. It highlights how this approach provides a more nuanced understanding of long term change processes; the distinctive importance of programmes versus sessions; and across sport immersion in, and understanding of, different sport cultures and its impact on coach-athlete relations.
