In the realm of sports psychology, there are two main theories of how coaching influences motivation, the Behavioral Approach to Coaching (BAC) and the Self-Determination Theory (SDT). Both theories work in different ways in order to increase motivation and produce desired behaviors from athletes. The Behavioral Approach to Coaching utilizes operant conditioning to shape desired behaviors. Operant conditioning concerns the relationship between three events, called contingencies. Operant conditioning follows a pattern called the ABC’s: If antecedent stimuli (A) are present, and behavior (B) is enacted, then a particular consequence (C) will occur.
A goal is a target, or a specific standard or an accomplishment that a person strives to attain (Vealey, 2007). Goal setting is one of the most commonly used and most effective performance enhancing strategies in psychology (Burton et al., 2001; Burton et al., 1998). Goals are also a psychological and motivational skill that can be found in sport. Goal setting effectiveness is defined as the perceived effectiveness that a given goal will have in motivating or improving performance for an individual while goal setting frequency is defined as the perceived amount of times that goal-setting is used during a competition or event. Goal setting is a psychological skill that has been proven to be a helpful skill in improving a task.

Are athletes more intrinsically motivated or extrinsically motivated? Motivation is an important factor when it comes to sports. The types of motivation in sports are intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation and amotivation. Intrinsic Motivation is when people participate in activities just for the pleasure and satisfaction they get out of it (Ryan & Deci, 2000). On the contrary extrinsic motivation is when an action is performed in order to receive an external reward (Pelletier et al., 1995).
thought that a coach is to stand up for what he or she believes to be true and right. Developing an athlete-centered approach to coaching, will allow coaches to make ethical and moral decisions for the well-being of their athletes, and create opportunities for success at all levels of an organization. Athlete-Centered Philosophy Developing a coach’s philosophy that puts the needs of the athlete first, provides a foundation for success for that coach and for the athlete. Diefenbach and Lauer (2009) suggested that coaches should develop a coaching philosophy that embraces goals commonly related to youth sport, which include the personal and social values associated with, and the life skills that can be learned from, participation: character,
There are many athletes who are successful in the field of sports and to complement that physicality came a lot of psychological preparation. As the great Michael Jordan once said, “Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” Sport psychology is a proficiency that uses psychological knowledge and skills to address optimal performance and well-being of athletes, as well as developmental and social aspects of sports participation. It has been proven to impact the creation of neural pathways within the brain, thus enabling a positive or negative effect on the technical aspects of sports, such as fluency, accuracy and timing. Strategies like goal-setting, thought-stopping and, simulation training have helped my psychological need of motivation immensely and hence improved my level of performance in dance this term positively based on the data collected.
