In this study we investigated the association between the perceived coach–athlete relationship and athletes’ 3 basic psychological needs: competence, autonomy, and relatedness.

Specifically, commitment and closeness were significantly correlated with competence and autonomy, whereas complementarity was significantly correlated with competence and relatedness.
