Another article titled “Pros and Cons of Sports Competition at the High School Level” says that “Through competition, teens establish a solid work ethic that values practice and rewards determination. teenagers enhance skills in self-reliance and team interaction, and develop new structures of self-motivation, discipline, and personal responsibility.” (Chen 2) The key words here are “Self motivation” and “Self Reliance.” Basically these competitions help the youths learn self reliance and self motivation (Also known as confidence).

To be successful on the athletic field and in life kids are going to need to be able to listen to given directions or orders and take them and apply them to whatever there are doing to try and be the best at whatever they are doing. Whether the kid listens to the directions or not will show on the athletic field because the end result will not be what was expected or the goal or task will not be met. One other benefit from sports is it builds leadership and communication skills that can help them in school and in life. To be successful in athletics you have to communicate with each other and to do so you need to be able to block out whatever else is going on and focus on communicating with teammates and working towards your goal.

Task 1 The context of each and every subject is made up of building blocks. Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) are the building blocks of Physical Education. These skills provide the basic foundation for all future Physical Education endeavors. When taught to children at the primary school level, FMS provide an even playing field for all those participating in the class; this fosters the potential for future success in the classroom such as inclusion and a positive environment. Even more importantly, FMS allow for the Physical Education instructor to set achievable goals for each of his or her students.

In order to examine the learning journey of effective coaches, one must first review the literature that has been carried out previously. What is an effective coach? Côté and Gilbert defined effective coaching as “The consistent application of integrated professional, interpersonal, and intrapersonal knowledge to improve athletes’ competence, confidence, connection, and character in specific coaching contexts.” (2009, p.307). When exploring the learning journey of an effective coach, one must investigate the sources of learning, the content of learning and bio-pedagogical influences on a coach’s learning.

ABSTRACT - Inspecting the influence of coaches on individuals’ psychological experiences such as need satisfaction and performance enhancement, is a fascinating endeavor. This article is intended to study the research conducted regarding transformational leadership ideology in sports, conbined to the satisfaction of basic psychological needs.

Another important study on motivational climate is the study of Duda, et al (2003) which examined the relationship of the two achievement goal orientations in physical education to : (1) achievement-related beliefs (i.e. beliefs about the causes of success in and the purpose of PE, beliefs about the nature of physical ability), (2) affective responses such as enjoyment, anxiety, (3) self determination (student level of intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation and amotivation) (4) behavioral strategies and skill development, and (5) the level of physical activity engagement. In the first correlation study, it revealed that ego-orientation was predicted by the fixed belief that sport ability is a gift, and in contrast, task orientation was predicted by the incremental belief that sport ability is the product of learning. In affective response correlation, consistent in the achievement goal literature centered on the physical domain is the association between task orientation and positive affect. Greater enjoyment was reported by those who were high in task orientation and low in ego
Do you ever wonder if you can seek help with that?
