CASTILLO, Isabel et al. Controlling Coach Interpersonal Style, Basic Psychological Need Thwarting, and Burnout in Young Soccer Players. CPD [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.1, pp.143-146. ISSN 1989-5879.

Based on the basic psychological needs theory (BPNT; Deci & Ryan, 2000), in the present study a model with the following sequence was tested: controlling interpersonal coaching style þ basic psychological need thwarting þ burnout. Participants were 725 young male soccer players from category under 14 years old (Infantil), aged between 11 and 13 (M = 12.6; SD = .54) that completed the questionnaires tapping the variables of interest. Results of structural equation analyses informed that perception of a controlling interpersonal coaching style was a positive predictor of need thwarting for competence, autonomy and relatedness; thwarting for these three needs were positively associated with burnout.

Keywords : controlling coaching style; basic psychological need thwarting; burnout; young soccer players.
