NASSS and sports scholars more broadly continue to investigate and critique sport coaching, coach-athlete relations, and best coaching practices.  Increasingly these critiques emphasize how coaching operates within social contexts. This session welcomes papers that explore all aspects of the sociology of sport coaching from any methodological or theoretical perspective.  Especially those examining power relations, knowledge development, roles, and how race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class and other aspects of identity operate within these topics.  Paper focusing on the conference theme (Sport Soundtrack: Sport, Music, and Culture) and sports coaching are welcome.
