dc.description.abstract Qualitative researchers have shown that adult-oriented coaching practices enhance sport experiences for Masters athletes (MAs); however, this has not been quantitatively confirmed. Thus, the purpose of this study was to quantitatively examine the use of adult-oriented coaching practices throughout a season to determine if the practices changed over time, if the practices enhanced the sporting experiences for MAs, and if congruence (similarity between MAs’ and coaches’ perceptions of how often the practices are used) played a role in the quality of sport experiences for MAs. The findings indicated that adult-oriented coaching practices remain stable over time and foster outcomes that infer a quality Masters sport experience. Congruence was also related to quality sport experience outcomes but did not mediate the relationships between coaching practices and sport experience outcomes. The findings have implications for coaches, athletes, and policymakers involved in competitive adult sport. en_US
