There is much anecdotal evidence highlighting the important role that coaches play in the development and performance levels of athletes and teams. This publication is the result of a 2004 workshop which aimed to provide a critical evaluation of current theory and research in the psychology of coaching and outline how this can be applied to maximise the effectiveness of coaches. It comprises chapters written by each of the four presenters.
