La relation entraîneur-entraîné en tennis : liens familiaux et construction subjective

Abstract : The coach-athlete relationship is considered as a determining aspect of sport's performance. Coaches have to rely on their scientific knowledge to prepare their athletes to achieve their highest goals. Contrary to other research on sport psychology who based their studies on the interaction with a social or leadership focus, the psychoanalysis approach proposes to deal with the singularity of each athlete's psychic structure. The concept of transference helps to understand that previous relationships with significant others may have consequences on their next relationships. This study aims to analyse the affective process behind the coach-athlete relationship and how the affective demand evolve from childhood to adulthood depending on the athlete's family structure. We interviewed 14 high level players and analysed them as case studies. This case series shows similarities in terms of structure between athletes. The affective demands towards the coach evolve depending on whether the athlete has decided that the primary motivation to compete is the desire to play for him/herself or whether he/she remains dependant on the coach's desire.
