Coaching Leadership among HBCU Student Athletes
Leadership is an important element when it comes to collegiate sports. Leadership is one of the most significant components in human resource management in corporations as well as in sport teams. Leadership in athletics refers to the process of inspiring of influencing athletes of a team to perform their tasks enthusiastically and competently to meet the team’s goals (Bridges & Raquemore,1996). College student athletes are affected by leadership shown by their coaches. Students should be knowledgeable about how leadership affects your performance as college student athletes. The purpose of the study was to examine the leadership among HBCU College Student athletes.
