Abstract The present study focuses on the examination and comparison of the recovery-stress state of German full-time, part-time, and volunteering coaches. Examining individual stressors and recovery activities of coaches should provide a deeper understanding for their stress and recovery states. 296 coaches of different kinds of sport completed the Recovery-Stress Questionnaire for Coaches (RESTQ-Coach). Additionally, they answered open-ended questions about their individual stressors and recovery activities over the past four weeks. The results showed that full-time coaches had significant higher Social Stress values than part-time and volunteering coaches. They also showed significant lower Social Recovery values. The three groups of coaches showed increased scores on the subscale Conflicts/Pressure. These results correspond with the coaches’ qualitative statements. Coaches most frequently reported that they are stressed by conflicts with athletes, with their social environment (e. g., family), or with club management.
