dc.description.abstract There has been little research on whether or not high school coaches intentionally use aspects of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) to positively prepare ethnic minority athletes for college and career readiness (Lintunen & Gould, 2014). This study sought to explore how high school coaches of a predominantly Latinx student population intentionally and unknowingly apply SEL components in their coaching pedagogy. The purpose of this multiple case study was to describe coaches’ understandings of SEL in the context of high school student-athletes. For this study, a case study was the preferred approach, as it provides a unique strength in its ability to deal with a full variety of evidence such as documents, field notes, and interviews (Yin, 2014). Three research questions on coaching and teaching SEL life skills were used to guide this study. Purposeful sampling was used to gather the necessary data needed to address the study’s research questions. This study was developed using Gould and Carson’s (2008a) model for using sports as a venue for coaching life skills. In addition, the study used the CASEL’s (2018c) framework for promoting SEL skills through the five core competencies. The participants explained what it means to be a coach, how they teach life skills, and the types of life skills that they want their student-athletes to adopt. The findings of this study provide ample evidence that demonstrates coaches are motivated to teach life skills and that most of those life skills reflect the teachings of SEL skills. en_US
