COACH-PARENT RELATIONSHIP IN SPORT INCLUSION: A WHEELCHAIR FENCING PILOT STUDY

Valeria Agosti, Marco Autuori, Antonio Borgogni

Abstract


In recent years, the sport phenomenon has taken new forms especially regarding inclusion. Sport, health, and disability are now constructs intertwined in a relational model that also involves the family of the person with a disability. However, there is still a lack of in-depth knowledge about the relationship between coach, parent and athlete and the educational models useful in making this relationship effective both for the sporting result and, above all, for the quality of life of the person with a disability. Starting from the concept of disability offered by the ICF and from the idea of sport as a social model, and on the track the Athletic Triangle the present work, as a pilot study, aims to investigate this relationship in order to offer a model for sport inclusion in wheelchair fencing.
