This paper serves to explain the conceptual performance in archery that affected by psychological relatedness factor. Coaches, teammates and athlete play important role in every sport. Distinguishing and understanding each factor of psychological relatedness is important in determining the athlete’s performance. The inter-relatedness between coach and athlete is vital in bringing out the best performance of athletes. Despites of having advance tools and equipment in archery, however, archer’s performance still can be fluctuated, this may be due to the intangible factor which requires more study in the context. Thus this research served the theoretical explanation that may affect the athlete’s performance. This research suggests that factor such as coach; teammate and athlete should understand the way they communicate with each other, so that the interaction between them would not affect athletes’ performance. Therefore, future research should focus more on interrelationship existed between them and factors that might influence on athletes’ performance.
