Sažetak
Sport coaches are part of the population that has its own specificities and because of their connection to athletes, especially young ones, they way of life deserves to be researched. As sports have a very important role in many nations worldwide, and even though for that the athletes take most of the credits the coaches are of great importance also, so their education in all fields would surely contribute to improvement of an athlete’ s performance. The sample comprises 46 male table tennis coaches from different clubs in Croatia. For dietary habits, alcohol consumption and smoking habits determination, the new questionnaire was constructed based on previous national and international studies. To determine physical activity levels the Baecke questionnaire of habitual physical activity was used. The questionnaire was completed anonymously. The obtained data were analyzed by standard statistical procedures, with statistical software package SPSS 13.0. According to the results it is obvious that dietary habits of the coaches are not on adequate level. Especially there is a problem in skipping the meals and eating fast food. Smoking is unfortunately widely accepted and though the campaign against smoking is going on in many countries the real results are still not apparent, and the number of deaths caused by cancer that could be connected with smoking is still very high. Concerning the smoking habits it was found that 34.6% of the table tennis coaches are smokers, although the majority of them stated that that they are smoking between 5 and 10 cigarettes per day. 66% of coaches are consuming alcohol, mostly beer and wine. The levels of all examined dimensions of habitual physical activity were greater than in average Croatia male population.
