The main purpose of the current study was to examine how grit, neuroticism, perfectionism and perceived stress are uniquely associated with well-being and burnout among Norwegian coaches in a variety of sports. A sample of 107 coaches participated in the current study. A regression analysis revealed that grit uniquely predicted positive well-being, while neuroticism, perfectionism as well as perceived stress all contributed uniquely to predict well-being negatively. The variables uniquely explained 69% of the variance in the coaches' well-being. A second regression analysis showed that neuroticism, perfectionism and perceived stress all uniquely predicted burnout positively and together they accounted for 30% of the variance in the coaches’ burnout. The findings are discussed in terms of applied implications and possible future research.
