The Sport Climate Questionnaire (SCQ)

The SCQ has a long form containing 15 items and a short form containing 6 of the items. The questionnaire is typically used with respect to specific coaches or individuals in comparable positions with respect to a sport or physical activity. The wording can be changed slightly to specify the particular situation being studied. The questions then pertain to the autonomy support of the respondentÕs coach, trainer, or sport/exercise instructor. Below, you will find the 15-item version of the questionnaire, worded in terms of Òmy coachÓ (or trainer). If you would like to use the 6-item version, simply reconstitute the questionnaire using only items # 1, 2, 4, 7, 10, and 14.
