Background. In both individual and team sports, various internal and external factors influence individuals to engage in these sports. These factors also play a role in the coach-athlete relationship.
Objectives. The aim of this study is to investigate the coach-athlete relationship and the factors influencing participation motivation for both individual and team athletes.
Methods. The study included 100 male and female amateur athletes between the ages of 14 and 18. Participants were administered a personal information form (gender, age, education level, sports discipline, years of participation), a coach-athlete relationship scale, and a participation motivation scale. SPSS 25.00 software package was used for data analysis.
Results. The analysis revealed a significant relationship in favor of individual sports in the coach-athlete relationship's common goal (p=0.010) and trust sub-dimensions (p=0.28), while a significant relationship in favor of team sports was found in the friendship sub-dimension of participation motivation (p=0.14).
Conclusion. As a result, it is believed that the factors influencing individuals' participation in sports and the communication established by the coach with the athletes will play an important role in both participation motivation and the success of the athletes.
