This study was based on the questionnaire filled-up by 60 DHOH national athletes. Confirmatory factor analysis was applied to evaluate the structural validity of the questionnaire which was made up of 11 items and 3 derived constructs (closeness, commitment, complementarity). The findings were in line with the three-factor structure of the original questionnaire. The "Coach-Athlete Relationship Questionnaire" was a valid and reliable measurement tool evidenced as an output of this study.
