Abstract or Summary
  • The competencies of athletic coaches in selected Oregon high schools were analyzed to determine the agreement among various groups of coaches and principals as to what represents success in high school coaching, and the agreement among groups of selected coaches and principals in their assessment of the importance of these coaching competencies to becoming a successful athletic coach in Oregon high schools. A selected jury of ten national leaders of state high school athletic associations, ten Oregon secondary school principals, and ten Oregon secondary school athletic coordinators approved the coaching competency and the success-in-coaching items used with Oregon coaches and principals. The approved instrument contained 119 competency items and 18 success in coaching items to be ranked by the respondent as "essential," "important, " "useful," or not needed" for the knowledge and skill competencies necessary for coaches; and "most important," "usually important," "some importance," "seldom important," or "not important" for the items representing success in coaching. The responses were then subjected to a multiple discriminant analysis procedure which determined whether groups could be distinguished from each other in the assessment of each competency category. The population selected for this investigation included athletic coaches and principals of 61 high schools located in eight districts in the state of Oregon. Data from the responses of 365 coaches and 50 principals indicate that coaches as a group agree as to what represents success in coaching, principals as a group disagree slightly, and a very significant degree of discrepancy exists between coaches' and principals' groups as to what represents success in coaching. The data also conclude that coaches' groups and principals' groups are in agreement as to the cornpetencies a coach should possess. But significant disagreement exists between coaches and principals in the following categories: physiological foundations, athletic coaching abilities, school and community relationships, and administrative procedures. Items relating to the needs of the individual participant were ranked as the most important area representing successful coaching. The study also indicates that major areas of importance for coaching preparation are personnel relations, athletic coaching abilities, and health and safety of the participant. Recommendations were made whereby information obtained from this study might be utilized for: 1. Development of a university preparation program for students expressing desire to become high school coaches, 2. Identification of competencies essential to successful performance in coaching which might be used by local school districts as a basis for developing systems of selecting and evaluating coaches, and 3. Development of standards to be used by the State Department of Education in determining the qualifications needed by athletic coaches.
