Abstract
This study examined the relationship between work–family conflict, organisational support, and job–life satisfaction of South African sports coaches. The sample consisted of 114 sports coaches, ranging in age from 18 to 64 years (Mage = 30.67, SD = 9.80 years), who volunteered to participate in the study. Data were collected using the following instruments: Work–Family Conflict Scale, Perceived Organisational Support Scale, Job Satisfaction Questionnaire, and Satisfaction with Life Scale. The results showed a significant negative correlation between work–family conflict and organisational support (r = –.240, p<.05). Organisational support was significantly correlated with job satisfaction (r = .345, p<.01) and life satisfaction (r = .276, p<.01), both of which were also strongly and positively correlated (r = .564, p<.01). The regression analyses further showed that the relationship between these variables was reciprocal, but life satisfaction (β = .581, p<.01) had a slightly stronger influence on job satisfaction than job satisfaction (β = .567, p<.01) had on life satisfaction. These results provide practical implications for sports organisations to implement “familyfriendly” work policies in order to reduce work–family conflict and enhance both work (e.g., job satisfaction) and non-work (e.g., life satisfaction) outcomes among sports coaches.
