Abstract and Keywords

The performance coach (PC) is an increasingly ubiquitous feature of many performance environments. Often seen as having its genesis in the sport environment, this performance emphasis for PCs stands interestingly at odds with a groundswell of opinion against such a sole focus for sport practitioners. This chapter considers this tension, together with the objectives underpinning knowledge and modus operandi that can represent good practice in PCing. Through this means, we offer a position statement on the PC field, examining concerns and highlighting issues for its future progression.

Keywords: Expertise, professional practice, skill development, coaching, professional judgment, decision making
