An exploratory questionnaire of 20 items covering four behavioral categories, personal and organizational, questioning, skill-specific, and "other", was developed. Junior badminton players (county = 220; international = 80) completed the assessment of coaching behavior.
The two groups were different on the overall score, and three of the four factors (personal and organizational, questioning, and skill-specific).
