Abstract (summary)

This study (a) provided initial validity evidence for the Coaching Competency Scale (CCS), and (b) introduced multilevel confirmatory factor analysis (MCFA) as an appropriate methodology to use when data are meaningfully nested and an evaluation of the factor structure of a set of indicators is desired. Data were collected from intercollegiate men's (g = 8) and women's (g = 13) soccer and women's ice hockey teams (g = 11). Results offered some support for the proposed multilevel multidimensional conceptualization of coaching competency, the internal consistency reliabilities of the coaching competency estimates, and a relationship between motivation competency and satisfaction with the coach within teams. Validity concerns were observed for the original rating scale structure and the relationship between motivation competency and satisfaction with the coach between teams. Results were interpreted to guide future research with the CCS, to provide recommendations for revisions to the instrument, and to assist researchers in physical education and exercise science in understanding when and how to apply MCFA to their data.
