This chapter sets out to explore current knowledge regarding professional practice in an emerging sub-group of outdoor professionals, namely the adventure sports coach (ASC). This chapter will unearth the domain-specific mechanisms, challenges, context and dynamics of the Professional Judgement and Decision Making (PJDM) process in high-level ASCing. The literature-based findings of a series of previous positional and empirical papers (Collins & Collins, 2012, 2013, 2014; Collins, Collins & Grecic 2014) are summarised and implications considered. We have adopted an unconventional structure, on the assumption that readers will access these papers as providing the substance to our argument.
