  • Research in coach education has considered various ways in which coaches learn to coach. Mentoring has received attention in recent years as a possible way for coaches to learn, yet most of the research has described only what is learned not how learning has occurred. Using constructivist theory, this thesis described how learning occurred through a coach mentoring program between swim coaches over an eight week period. The learning experiences in this study showed how constructivist theory can be used to understand learning and how future mentoring programs can be designed for the best learning opportunities for coaches and the best teaching opportunities for mentors.
