Eating disorders in elite floorball : - A qualitative study of elite floorball coaches’ experience of eating disorders and what support they feel they need to help the players (English)
Abstract [en]

BackgroundFloorball is Sweden's third largest sport and in elite floorball eating disorders have increasingly been noted. This may partly depend on the attitudes and demands of coaches. Studies indicate that elite coaches lack the knowledge to manage an eating disorder.

ObjectiveTo explore elite floorball coaches experience of eating disorders and what support they feel they need to help the players.

MethodSemi-structured interviews were conducted with five elite floorball coaches. The recruitment was conducted by the research coordinator at Swedish Floorball Research and Development Center and the development unit at the Swedish Floorball Federation. The interviews were transcribed and analyzed using qualitative content analysis.

ResultsThe informants agreed that eating disorders was perceived as a problem in either their own, former or others teams and that the disease was difficult to identify. There were divided opinions among the coaches about the importance of body weight for the individual player. The coaches felt that it was everyone's responsibility to report a suspected eating disorder. None of the coaches had specific education in the management of eating disorders. All acted on what they believed was the correct approach, creating a great uncertainty. The most difficult part when confronting a player was the players' negative reactions. The coaches experienced guilt after a late discovery. The coaches expressed a desire for a comprehensive material to deal with eating disorders, a clarity from the federation about their position in the issue of eating disorders.

ConclusionElite floorball coaches express somehow an uncertainty regarding the identification and confrontation of distorted eating behavior. The trainers requested a comprehensive material with clear advice from the federation was requested. This study may form the background for future deep going studies on eating disorders in elite floorball. The data can be used to develop goal oriented actions to design an eating disorder policy.
