Peculiarities of coach's leadership qualities through the eyes of basketball players



The aim of the research is to study the peculiarities of a coach's leadership qualities through the eyes of young and adult basketball players. To achieve this goal, Leadership scale in sports developed by Chelladurai was used as a methodological instrument. It turned out that juniors evaluated the coach's behaviour more positive than adult basketball players did. For junior basketball players a more positive assessment of such coach's leadership qualities is characteristic: training and instruction, social support and positive feedback.
