Abstract

The study provides information on sources of coaching efficacy information as predictors of coaching efficacy of Nigerian coaches. 93 male and female collegiate sports coaches of team and individual sports (age: Mean=32.46, SD=.29) were sampled and rated on sources of coaching information questionnaire (r=.72 to .86) and coaching efficacy scale (r=.61 to .87). Findings revealed that 9% of the sources of coaching efficacy information accounted for the explained variance in coaching efficacy. Sources of coaching efficacy information significantly (P<.05) contributed to coaching efficacy of Nigerian coaches. Past experience, coaching preparation, prior success, perceived ability of athletes' skill and perceived social support of parents, school and community has provided information that will promote further studies on coaching efficacy behaviour as it affect learning and performance of athletes. The use of social support mechanisms need to be enhanced for the coaches to promote coaching efficacy behaviour.
