Providing social support to injured athletes: Applications of the international sport coaching framework


Author(s): Stefanee Maurice, Clayton Kuklick and Martha Anderson

Abstract: This manuscript aims to use the International Sport Coaching Framework (ISCF) to highlight how integrated coaching knowledge (i.e., professional, interpersonal, intrapersonal) can be used to offer athletes’ social support in the injury rehabilitation process. Existing research suggests that injured athletes may be isolated from their coach and team, which contributes to negative emotions that significantly shape athletes’ return to play. Research exploring social support provided by others, excluding coaches, during the rehabilitation process has shown to mediate the effects of injury, yet little research has shown how coaching knowledge is used to provide social support to injured athletes. This manuscript applies integrated coaching knowledge towards providing social support during injury rehabilitation. Hypothetical injury scenarios are shared and analyzed using the ISCF to show how the knowledge can be applied to provide social support. This review suggests coaches can apply and expand their knowledge towards providing social support in the injury rehabilitations process.
