    • Abstract:
      The purpose of this study was to determine if relationships existed between an athlete's propensity for eating disorders and coach's influences, role of family, and involvement in recreational activities. The literature to date, points to the rather significant role of the coach upon the athlete's level of risk for developing Anorexia and/or Bulimia. Three hypothesis were presented in this study. The first examined the relationship between the occurrence of eating disorders in the athlete and the level of sensitivity their coach had regarding eating disorders. The second examined the relationship between the role of the family and the athlete's likelihood for developing an eating disorder. The third hypothesized that consistent involvement in recreational activities would reduce the risk of the athlete developing Anorexia and/or Bulimia. Fifty-two female collegiate cross country runners from Oregon, Idaho, and Washington were given surveys regarding their experiences as high schools athletes. The researcher traveled to each of the eight campuses involved in the study to administer the surveys. The results from this study indicate that there is a significant relationship between the role of the family and the athlete's propensity for eating disorders. Involvement in recreational activities appears to have no significant affect upon the development of Anorexia and/or Bulimia in the athlete. In addition, the contribution of the coach with respect to eating disorders, was not seen in the results. This result contradicts the majority of research focusing on this topic to date.
