Abstract [sv]

Enligt  Self-determination Theory presterar människor bäst när de upplever inre motivation, snarare än motivation sprungen ur yttre faktorer. Denna studie syftar till att undersöka motivation hos gruppen innebandytränare. I synnerhet undersöks anledningar till att börja som tränare, samt sambandet mellan dessa och tränarnas upplevda motivation. En webbenkät sändes ut till 1059 innebandytränare i Sverige varav 355 svarade. Resultatet visar 12 kategorier av  anledningar till varför tränarna valde att engagera sig: Egna barn, Idrottsintresse, Bidra, Saknades tränare, Nöje, Egen utveckling, Allmänt intresse, Ledarskapsintresse, Social kontakt, Tillfrågad, Besatt kompetens, samt Gott syfte. Resultatet visar även att tränarna upplevde inre motivation i störst utsträckning. Flera samband återfanns mellan åtta av kategorierna och typ av motivation. Tydligast var den positiva korrelationen mellan kategorin Bidra och självbestämmande motivation. Detta kan bero på att viljan att bidra går att relatera till det psykologiska behovet av samhörighet. Studien bidrar till kunskap kring inre motiverande faktorer hos idrottstränare.

Abstract [en]

According to Self-determination Theory, people perform better when they experience inner motivation, rather than motivation sprung from external factors. This study aims to examine motivation in floorball coaches. Especially, reasons for starting to work as a coach are examined, as well as relationships between those reasons and the coaches experienced type of motivation. A web-survey was sent to 1059 floorball coaches in Sweden, wich were answered by 355 coaches. The results show 12 reasons why the coaches chose to commit themselves: Their own children, Sports interest, Contribute, Lack of coaches, Enjoyment, Their own development, A general interest, Leadership interest, Social connections, Asked to, Possessed expertise and A good cause. The results also showed that the coaches experienced inner motivation to the largest extent. Several relationships were shown between eight of the categories and the different types of motivation. Of those, the most distinct was the relationship between Contribute and self-determined motivation. This may be due to that the will to contribute can be related to the psychological need for relatedness. The study contributes to the knowledge of factors that may affect inner motivation in athletic coaches.
