The paper presents the survey results of the (self)assessment of Croatian football coaches (N=139). In the research the author used the Schwartz questionnaire Portrait Values Questionnaire (2001, PVQ). The research was carried out in 2017 in cooperation with the Croatian Football Academy, and the results show that Croatian coaches highly value benevolence (M=4,89), universalism (4,75), independence (4,76) and safeness (M=4,24). The values that reflect the orientation of an individual toward himself – like power (M=3,13), achievement (M=3,98), hedonism (M=3,99) were rated by the trainers on average by lower grades. The analysis of the results also shows that there are differences in the value selection among the coaches’ subgroups (UEFA A, UEFA B and UEFA PRO). Although benevolence is in the first place to all subgroups, coaches differ in the values of tradition, achievement, hedonism, safety and conformism. Schwartz’s model does not show satisfactory metric characteristics on the selected specific sample of the examinees. The results demonstrated that on the total sample of all coaches as well as of the coach groups, the factor structure of the value is only partly in accordance with Schwartz’s theory of universal contents and value structure.
