Abstract: This article aims to analyze the concept of communicative competence of the sports pedagogue. It seeks to answer the following questions: whether there is a reason to talk about differences in the behavior of the sports pedagogue who is carrying out activities in the gym and the teacher who is carrying out activities in the classroom; and what are the differences between the communication during a competition and the communication during an educational-training practice. An emphasis is placed on the specifics of verbal and non-verbal communication in the gym.
Keywords: physical education and sport, communicative competence, sports pedagogue, pedagogical communication, verbal and nonverbal communication.
