Abstract By now, coach’s professional functions have long been expanded: from merely training an athlete for competitions to performing multiple roles of a manager, teacher, psychologist, etc. With the growing popularity of cheerleading and improvement of methods, means and conditions of sports training, with enhanced requirements to skills in major sport subjects, the demand for a coach as the key figure in training successful cheerleaders also grows. It is particularly important for athletes from children sports schools where a coach is bringing up an individual the society needs. In this regard, the research was aimed at studying the level of professional skills development in cheerleading coaches of various qualifications. To achieve the above goal, the following research methods were applied: retrospective analysis of psychological and pedagogical literature, studying pedagogical experience, surveying, testing. A research was conducted to identify the required professional skills of cheerleading coaches, taking into account pedagogical activities. Methods were used to identify the development level of reflection capability, willful self-regulation, empathic trends, personal aggressiveness and propensity to conflict, dialogue-based structure of inter-personal relations and creativity. It was found that coaches with greater practical work experience had a much higher level of indicators like constructive relations (83 %), persistence index (83 %), sign-based thinking (67 %) and creativity (33 %). Most coaches with smaller practical experience had a medium level of these properties’ development. Consequently, thelevel of skills required for coach’s efficient professional development primarily depends on the personal experience and the content of educational system.
