After summarizing prevalent models of leadership in sport, the chapter identifies the inconsistencies among the guidelines emanating from these models. Based on the three distinct manifestations of sport—egalitarian sport, elite sport, and entertainment sport, a reconciliation and synthesis is offered based on the different purposes of sport participation—pursuit of pleasure and pursuit of excellence.

Keywords: Autonomy-support; pursuit of pleasure; pursuit of excellence; deliberate play; deliberate practice; egalitarian sport; elite sport; entertainment sport; mediational model; multidimensional model; ego and task orientations; ego and task climates
