Burnout has been identified as a factor contributing to the continuing decline in the number of female coaches. The present study examined the perceived level of burnout in coaches of women’s teams in 2-year colleges using the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) to measure burnout levels. The findings revealed significant gender differences on the Emotional Exhaustion subscale. The possible reasons for female coaches experiencing higher levels of burnout are discussed.
