The Construction of an Epistemology of Coach's Practice-based Experience
Exploring the Triple Spaciality of Tour Companionship between Tennis Pro and Coach
The aim of this paper is contributed to clarify the epistemology of coach's practical experience. For the purpose, this study is based on my nine-months fieldwork experience in accompanying three professional tennis players competing in various international tournaments. It discloses an epistemological structure of companionship between player and coach. I argue that the tour companionship is operated respectively through three colors of spaciality which are white, grey and black. Under the spaciality of white light, the interaction is full of positive, active, and interconsiderate senses. In the spaciality of grey light, the interaction is full of negative, uncertain and dangerous senses. While in the spaciality of black light, the interaction is situated in the critical moment of irrationality, collapse and broken relationship. Through the clarity of the structural model of coach's accompanying experience, this study can thus argue that a coach's practice-based experience is tacit knowledge and the base of knowledge if not itself all knowledge. By looking at the experience of actual sport setting, we are better able to understand the essence of a coach's practical knowledge which is understudied in nowadays academic research of physical education.
