As social and cultural diversity increases in the United States, coaches frequently interact with athletes from a wide range of backgrounds. Therefore, it would be useful if coaches had established guidelines for best practices to support their socially and ethically responsible work with athletes. However, coaching organizations have not published best practice standards specifically for coaches’ work with socially and culturally diverse athletes. This article proposes Sociocultural Competencies for Sport Coaches (SCSC) to support positive coach-athlete relationships.

The purpose of this critical review is to propose a coach education system for Oman. The lack of any coach education system is one of the major obstacles confronting sport in Oman, which is an emerging “sport-interested” country (Zayed, 2004). The current review is based on two sources. First, an empirical investigation across Oman was conducted. Second, in order to learn from other notable coach-education systems, national and international coach-education systems were analyzed. Four data-gathering instruments were selected: questionnaire, interview, document analysis, and a research journal. Knowledge and understanding gained in these exercises were used to underpin a proposal for a coach education system for Oman that includes an accreditation structure, a curriculum outline, and a management system.
