Both the short- and long-term effects of systematic supervisory feedback (SSF) using CAFIAS on the behaviors of a field hockey coach and her team were examined. The investigation was divided into four phases. During Phase I the coach was videotaped five times to provide baseline data. In Phase II the coach was videotaped nine times and was provided with SSF. At the conclusion of the intervention, five practices were videotaped for Phase III. One year later, in Phase IV, the coach was again videotaped for five practices. Descriptive statistics were calculated and comparisons were made between the behaviors exhibited in Phases I and II as well as Phases III and IV. Praise and information increased, and directions and criticism decreased from Phases I and III. These changes were evident 1 year later. This investigation demonstrates that even the behaviors of an experienced coach can be altered using SSF and that these changes can be sustained over time.
