Knowledge management -- Applications to sports, Coaching (Athletics), Communication in sports


Sport knowledge management is a wide topic that could take place at any kind of sport. One of the most important issues in sport knowledge management is the knowledge transfer between coaches and players at any team at any kind of sport. In this paper, I’ll focus in the knowledge transfer strategy from the coach to the players mind in the soccer field in order to direct them during their games and practices. The reason that I’ll focus in soccer because I have a personal experience as a soccer player several years ago while playing for the Saudi national league back home. In this paper, I’ll provide my personal experience as a player while I was playing under various coaches. I’ll also interview some of the coaches in the states in order to get their feedback regarding this topic. This paper will also illustrate the literature review about other papers that have talked about knowledge management in sport. In addition, few applications of the knowledge transfer in other sports will be presented such as in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and National Football League (NFL).
