Abstract


The scope of this study was to re-evaluate the Scale of Coaching Performance (SCP) in the Greek athletic system, re-assess its factor structure and items included and investigate club level participants. A questionnaire was constructed and distributed to a purposive sample of 340 club basketball coaches. Participants assessed the importance of the criteria included for the evaluation of basketball coaches. Three items initially included at the SCP were removed and seven new where added. Exploratory factor analysis supported the pre-determined four factor structure named: “Direct Task Behaviours”, “Indirect Task Bahaviours”, “Personal Products” and “Team Products”. Confirmatory factor analysis revealed adequate fit between the model and the 25 items. Results supported the conceptual theory that a model should be adapted to the specific athletic environment and its dimensions and criteria should be re-examined at times.
