Abstract. 
The purpose of this study is to research the relationship between the motivation to succeed among badminton players and the coach's communication levels. In total, 66 athletes (33 female and 33 male) who were players of the different university teams during the 2015- 2016 Intercollegiate Sport Season had participated to this research. Within the scope of this study, The Coach Communication Scale (Abakay and Kuru,2009) and Sports Related Success Motivation Scale (Willis, 1982) have been applied to the participants. These Scales are applied to the participants in groups at the places they had been camping for the seasons or before group exercises. The data gathered from the participants was entered into the SPSS program (version 22.0) program package versions and Independent t-test, ANOVA, Pearson Correlation Analysis was applied to it (p<0.05). As a result of this analysis; in terms of the participants’ gender; there was no significant difference both in the motivation for success sub-scales and the coaches’ communucation levels (p>0,05). In addition; in terms of the participants’ age; there was no significant difference both in motivation for success sub-scales and in coaches’ communication levels (p>0,05). Also similar to other results; in terms of participants’ income; there was no significant difference both motivation success sub-scales and coaches’ communication levels (p>0,05). Between participants’ motivation for success sport related and coaches’ communication levels also, we also found no significant differences. (p>0,05) Only we found that significant differences between power motive and motive to approach success; motive to avoid failure. (Respectively, r:,458; r:,758;p<0,05). In conclusion, we didn’t encounter any significant relationship between the motivation for success among badminton players and the coaches’. Coaches’ good communication levels do not affect to athletes’ motivation of success. In other words; athletes’ power motive, motive to approach success and motive to avoid failure was not concerned with coaches’ communication levels.
