Just wondering if any studies have been carried out comparing the following in sport: successful male athletes coached by female coaches and successful female athletes coached by female coaches.

That would make for interesting reading Deborah! I’m not sure myself but will consult some of my colleagues in the sports coach UK research team and see if they know whether or not any studies have been done

Hi Deborah

I’ve been in contact with the author and she has provided the following paper reference:

Jowett, S., & Nezlek, J. (2012). Relationship Interdependence and Satisfaction with Important Outcomes in Coach-Athlete Dyads. Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, 29, 287-301.

Summary: We have found that coaches and athletes who are of the same gender (male-male and female-female) are more likely to develop good quality relationships and also be more satisfied with sport, training and personal treatment than other gender (e.g., male – female). Reasons for it are supplied in the discussion.

There are also a couple more studies that Sophia has carried out that look at gender…less directly though.

You can find out more here https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Sophia_Jowett/contributions

Thanks

Rob

I thought that might be the case. On TV at International competitions, I quite often see elite foreign Track & Field athletes (usually male) with female coaches which is much more unusual in this country. I wonder why there seem to be more women at a higher coaching level abroad. It would be interesting to see if their coaching courses differ in structure and content to ours and what the reason is for so few elite female coaches in this country.
