Esteves, D., Pinheiro, P., Bras, R. & O’Hara, K. (2009). Do elite coaches understand sport scientists? - A study about the  usefulness of research data (Verstehen Trainer im Spitzensport Sportwissenschaftler? - Eine Studie zur Nützlichkeit von Forschungsdaten). In 14th annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science, Oslo/Norway, June 24-27, 2009, Book of Abstracts. (S. 32-33). Zugriff am 29.10.2009 unter

Despite the abundance of scientific literature, databases and electronic papers concerning sport sciences (Lippi et al., 2008), there is a general perception that coaches lack operative data to the decision making process (Midgley et al., 2007), that is the major task of the sport training process (Abraham et al. 2006). In this sense, we came to a paradox: the amount of available data may not correspond to the enhancement of sport performance during training process. This paradox may be related to a data overflow problem (Liautaud & Hammond, 2000). Under the scope of contributing to minimise that ’’gap’’ between research and coaching practice, this work aims (1) to evaluate the usefulness of research data, concerning the needs of the coaches and (2) to propose some major solutions to minimise this problem. This study used a survey to evaluate the perceptions of 47elite coaches in Portugal regarding both the usefulness of data in scientific literature and data overflow problem. Results show that elite coaches lack operative data, or because they perceived is not available for ecologic training process, or it is available but not in an “adequate”, understandable language. Among this investigation, we reach several major conclusions: (1) data overflow may be a problem in sport sciences; (2) to do a proper use of available data, it is necessary the implementation of mechanisms in data’s search, selection and treatment, according to Information Management Theory (Eppler & Mengis, 2004; Savolainen, 2007) and (3) research results in sport sciences must be oriented to the training process, and transmitted more efficiently to the coaches (similar results were pointed out by Williams & Kendall, 2007).
