Abstract
The purpose of this study was to determine figure skaters‟ perceptions regarding their injury experiences and the support provided by their coaches following their injuries. Eight female, competitive figure skaters were interviewed. The interview questions assessed the injury experience, the coach-athlete relationship, the skaters‟ perceptions of the support they received, their preferred types of social support, and the differences in social support through the injury phases. The results indicated that skaters did not receive from their coaches the types of support they deemed appropriate nor the quantity of support needed. However, the timing of the support they did receive was reported as appropriate. There were also differences between the type and amount of support received through the different injury phases. It was concluded that in order for skaters to perceive the support they received from their coaches as satisfactory, the correct type, timing and quantity must be provided.
