Malaysian volunteer coaches’ motivation through psychological contract theory: Implications for lifelong sport coaching volunteering


Author(s): Cheng Lee Ooi, Aminuddin Yusof

Abstract: This study examines how sport administrator manages sports volunteer coaches (VCs) using Psychological Contract (PC) theory as framework. Using qualitative methodology, five participants were chosen and they are an executive, a chief coach, and three active volunteer coaches. The findings revealed that sport administrator expects VCs to produce good results. VCs perceived intrinsic job characteristics, good faith and fair dealing, and works conditions as important motivation factors in volunteerism. The study showed a lack of good HRM practices in sport organisations. VCs look forward for professional structure and operation organisation that can assist them in promoting youth athletics development. Suggestions on the development of lifelong volunteering for sport coaches are also presented.
