Abstract [en]

Due to the large number of coaches coaching their own child in Swedish sport clubs, there is a need for studies about the dual role of being a coach and a parent to a child in a sport group. The aim of this study was to investigate the phenomenon of being a "parental coach" and a "coach child" in sport in the light of current childrearing discourses. By answering questions regarding what it means for the child athlete to have its father or mother as a team sport coach, and what it means for the parent to coach their own child this study starts to fill the research gap in this area. The method used was semi-structured interviews with seven “parental coaches” and six “coach children” aged 13-15 years old. A phenomenological analysis shows that there are both significant advantages and disadvantages with the dual roles of being a “parental coach” and a “coach child” in sport. The most salient advantages are the parents’ possibilities to influence their own child’s behaviour in the sport context as well as their athletic development and that the dual roles also provides opportunities for the parent and the child to spend time together and socialize. On the other hand, the disadvantages showed to be about the child’s difficulties to deal with critique from their parent and that the “parental coach” sometimes have higher demands on their own child’s behavior and sport performance compared to the other children. However, the results also shows that a “coach child” more easily is defying their “parental coach” than other coaches. Overall the study indicated this social relation requires children and parents to develop strategies to deal with the situation. One strategy used is to switch between the roles as coach/parent and athlete/child, in sport situations and at home.
