Major findings of the study include implications that in areas where coaches are authoritative, athletes may develop a dependency on the coach impacting their ability to self-regulate. Moreover, study conclusions demonstrate that coaches should make a concerted effort to build interpersonal relationships and communicate more with athletes who are novices in their program, particularly freshmen making the transition from high school to college.
