Although the concept of teamwork has historically not received the same level of research attention in sporting contexts as it has in other team settings (e.g., health care, military, and business; Carron et al., 2012 ; McEwan & Beauchamp, 2014 ), more evidence has begun to accumulate within

Derek M. Sokoloff, Trent A. Petrie, and Tsz Lun (Alan) Chu

Teamwork underlies successful task completion because it is expected to lead to facilitative cognitions (e.g., understanding of roles and responsibilities), affect (e.g., satisfaction), and behaviors (e.g., effective communication; LePine et al., 2008 ; Marks et al., 2001 ; Mathieu et al., 2008

Verbal Communication in Doubles Tennis: An Analysis of Close Games

Domagoj Lausic, Selen Razon, and Gershon Tenenbaum

The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in verbal communication between doubles tennis teams during close game situations. Verbal messages exchanged between team players were recorded by means of audiotapes and videotapes. Recorded communication data were coded and analyzed using the Discussion Analysis Tool software (DAT; Jeong, 2003). Results indicated that most of the verbal communication included action (i.e., 34%) and emotional statements (i.e., 34%). Winning teams communicated twice as many messages than losing teams. Specifically, during the close games they won, winning teams communicated significantly more than losing teams. Losing teams used more communication patterns in close games they won relative to the ones they lost. Winning and losing teams also used distinct communication patterns during the close games they won relative to the ones they lost. These distinct communication patterns may have in turn improved the winning teams’ coordination and thereby increased their likelihood of winning.

Transformational Leadership and Task Cohesion in Sport: The Mediating Role of inside Sacrifice

Lorcan Donal Cronin, Calum Alexander Arthur, James Hardy, and Nichola Callow

In this cross-sectional study, we examined a mediational model whereby transformational leadership is related to task cohesion via sacrifice. Participants were 381 American (M age = 19.87 years, SD = 1.41) Division I university athletes (188 males, 193 females) who competed in a variety of sports. Participants completed measures of coach transformational leadership, personal and teammate inside sacrifice, and task cohesion. After conducting multilevel mediation analysis, we found that both personal and teammate inside sacrifice significantly mediated the relationships between transformational leadership behaviors and task cohesion. However, there were differential patterns of these relationships for male and female athletes. Interpretation of the results highlights that coaches should endeavor to display transformational leadership behaviors as they are related to personal and teammate inside sacrifices and task cohesion.
