The role of parental ınvolvement in the quality of coach-athlete relationship in dance sport

Mikhaylova, Alen
Taking the athletic triangle as a starting point, main purpose of this master thesis was to identify from the coaches and parent’s perspective, role of parental involvement in the nature of the interpersonal coach-athlete relationship quality. The 3C conceptual model by Jowett & Cockerill's, 2002, that determines the quality of coach-athlete relationship was taken as a guiding theoretical framework. This investigation draws on data gathered from Turkish dance sport clubs that are currently active in this sport domain. The collection of data was conducted in a total of 3 months, which included semi-structured interviews with 6 coaches who at least had 10 years of coaching experience and 6 parents whose children have been involved in dance sport for at least 3 years. Interviews were based on the 3C's conceptual model, where coaches 5 and parents reported their explicit standpoints on closeness (emotions: trust and respect), commitment (cognitions: common goals) and complementarity (behaviors: roles and tasks). Analysis infers that the coach-athlete relationship identified by the 3C conceptual model is influenced by parents regarding the processes of opportunity, support, and information. According to the results, when parents’ visions and coach’s perception on the athlete’s development do not overlap, differences between their expectations start to occur. This situation leads to the negative parental behavior that has critical outcomes for the coach-athlete relationship. Consequently, a comfortable atmosphere in the coach-athlete relationship was created when parents allowed the athlete to progress with the assistance of the coach and only took part when it was deemed necessary.
