The main aim of this research is to depict the profile of training coaches (at children and cadet categories) in basketball. A questionnaire was designed for data collection and it was validated by using the technique of expert judges and by employing the Aiken coefficient V for the validation of the instrument. The results of the validation process were adequate being all above 0.7, which was the most demanding minimum standard. In fact, answers from 117 trainers in Andalusia were collected and that led us to conclude that the training basketball coach in Andalusia is a man between 25 and 44 years old who usually trains at a sports club. He usually trains for 3 days a week, during 1.5 hours and participates in a weekly competition. All coaches surveyed had the minimum qualification required to perform the functions as coach.
