The goal setting process

  1. 1. Goal Setting
  2. 2. Goal Setting • Setting clear targets, priorities and expectations of themselves • Athletes are more committed if they have specific goals • Goal setting has been shown to improve work- output by 40-50%
  3. 3. Three types of goal setting • Outcome goals • Performance goals • Process goals
  4. 4. Outcome goals • Focused on the end result (times, place finishing, medals) • Difficult to achieve because they’re linked to the performance of other athletes – no control over what others do.
  5. 5. Performance goals • Focus on comparing present performance levels to those attained previously • As long as they’re realistic, they can be successful • Eg: Improving a beep-test score from 10 – 11.
  6. 6. Process goals • Focuses on actions such as physical movements and game strategies • Eg: Executing the same routine before swinging the club • Eg: Performing a set play
  7. 7. Achieving Goals • It’s important to set shot-term (performance) goals to help pave the way towards achieving long-term (outcome) goals
  8. 8. Climbing the endurance mountain
  9. 9. SMARTER • Provides a tool to help writing down goals (developed by the National Coaching Association) • I want you to set a goal • Aim to complete it by the end of term/year • Use the example on page 313 to focus your thoughts • Make sure you copy down what the SMARTER acronym means.
  10. 10. Goals setting: • Improves performance by: • Focusing on attention to detail and important elements of a skill/s being performed • Activating and organising an athletes efforts • Encouraging athlete perseverance • Promoting the development of new learning strategies • Refining movements and set plays • Contributing towards a more positive psychological state
