However, evidence

humans look to others for information. In the sport environment, there would be few who would dispute that players look to the coach for information. Given the coach’s legitimate power ( French & Raven, 1959 ; Turman, 2006 ), the coach could easily make a request to the players to provide corrective

, this is not possible in professional team sport environments due to time and cost constraints. Therefore, in the case of team sport athlete testing, “signal” refers to individual changes in a monitoring test in response to training stimuli (provided by a valid test), whereas “noise” is represented by

This approach was necessitated by the practicalities of working in the elite sport environment but should

Due to this shortcoming, examples of indicators that have been used to measure sport well-being have included self-esteem ( Adie, Duda, & Ntoumanis, 2008 ), subjective vitality ( Gagné
