Abstract: The purpose of the study was to explore and identify selected observable nonverbal behaviors of collegiate female varsity volleyball and basketball coaches in practice and game situations as recalled by athletes and coaches. Within the study, answers were sought for nine questions which focused on a set of selected behaviors which might be recalled by coaches and athletes for practice and game situations. In addition, one question examined the agreement between athletes and coaches on selected behaviors for individual coaches. Twenty-three coaches and 118 athletes, representing 27 teams from 25 of 44 randomly selected colleges and universities, participated in the study during November and December 1979, and January 1980. Coaches and athletes completed the Nonverbal Behavior Descriptor Questionnaire (NBDQ) which they received through the mail.
