Coach-athlete relationship and athletes’ performance satisfaction: The mediating effects of hope and athlete engagement
This study aimed to investigate how coach-athlete relationship (CAR) influenced performance satisfaction among athletes, and the mediating role of hope and athlete engagement in the relationship between CAR and athletes’ performance satisfaction. Data for the present study were collected from 483 Chinese athletes. The results of the structural equation model showed that CAR was positively correlated with hope(r=0.33, p<0.01), athlete engagement(r=0.41, p<0.01), and performance satisfaction(r=0.36, p<0.01). Furthermore, CAR could positively predict performance satisfaction through (a) direct effect (β=0.21, p<0.01), (b) the mediating effect of hope(β=0.17, p<0.01), (c) the mediation effect of athlete engagement(β=0.04, p<0.01), and (d) the serial multiple mediation effects of hope and athlete engagement(β=0.05, p<0.01). The results suggested that through improving the quality of CAR, the level of hope and engagement among athletes could be increased, and then their performance satisfaction could be enhanced.
