Sample text

What we have attempted to do is highlight a body of research that brings into question traditional notions of coaching where athletes are instructed to focus on their movements while executing skills. It is equally clear that subtle differences in athletes’ focus of attention can have significant effects on both learning and performance. Furthermore, these effects vary (and in some cases will produce the opposite to the desired effect) according to the skill level of those to whom the instructions are given.

In such cases, individuals adopt a mode of control primarily associated with the early stages of learning (Fitts and Posner 1967), resulting in less effective performance. While the learning and performance benefits of using an external focus of attention appear robust, McNevin et al. (2003) proposed that the advantages of doing so were more profound and appeared earlier in the learning process as the distance of the external focus from the body increased. This was because, at a distance, such foci are more easily distinguishable from the body movements that produce them and, hence, facilitate the utilisation of more natural control processes.

According to Ames, two types of motivational climate predominate in such situations: a comparative (performance) climate that focuses on normative ability comparisons, and a self-referenced (mastery) climate that focuses on self-referenced effort and improvement. Research on motivational climate in sport and physical education (Carpenter and Morgan 1999; Ebbeck and Becker 1994; Kavussanu and Roberts 1996; Ntoumanis and Biddle 1998; Ommundsen et al. 1998; Papaioannou 1997; Spray 2002; Walling et al.
