The current study investigated ratings of coaches and their athletes on the Coaching Efficacy Scale. Coaches (n = 12) and athletes (n = 177) were recruited from several Southwestern universities and community colleges to participate in this study. The purpose of this study was to compare coaching efficacy ratings of coaches to those of their athletes to determine how similarly coaches and athletes perceive the coach’s efficacy. Coaches and athletes from a variety of team and individual sports, including male teams, female teams, and teams with a mixture of males and females participated in this study. Results indicated that there is a difference between coaches’ ratings of themselves and athletes’ ratings of their coaches. Differences were found in athlete gender as well as gender matching of coaches and athletes.
