ABSTRACT
This paper aims at analysing the importance assigned to different areas of knowledge for coaching and the perception of professional competence of Portuguese basketball coaches. Data gathering was conducted through a questionnaire developed by Mesquita et al. (in press), consisting of 37 items covering the categories of knowledge and competences related to: (a) Practice; (b) Competition; (c) Management; (d) Coach Education; (e) Personal and Social. The sample of this study is composed of 178 Portuguese basketball coaches. The results show that high experienced coaches award greater importance and perceived themselves more competent in the items related to knowledge and professional competences than low experienced coaches.
