Collegiate athletics are becoming more and more competitive. It is important that coaches do everything they can to get the most out of their athletes. This study surveyed over fifty collegiate athletes and over twenty collegiate coaches at the NCAA division two level. The athletes and coaches were current participants on team sports that included women’s basketball, women’s volleyball, men’s basketball, and men’s football. The purpose was to find out how an athletes’ self-efficacy was affected with positive versus negative coaching tone. The study showed that athletes have increased self-efficacy when receiving positive coaching strategies.
