Coaches’ Teaching Styles as Factors of its Effectiveness

Nikolaev Alexey N., Pskov State University

The article presents the results of three lines of an experimental study. This study aimed to establish: coaches’ working styles and interrelationships between these styles; results of coaches’ works and interrelationships between these results; and the effect coaching styles had on the parameters of their effectiveness. Several styles of coaches’ work were identified: variative and preparative. The study also identified two types of coaching work: one focused on disciplining and health-improvement, the other focused on instruction and competitions. The study demonstrates that various components of coaching activities result from different styles. Coaches’ satisfaction with their work and their occupation also depends on the styles of activities they employ.
