Effects of goal setting and self-efficacy on wheelchair basketball performance
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of goal setting and the mediating role of self-efficacy in the relationship between performance scores, in selected wheelchair basketball skills. Male wheelchair basketball players (n= 36) of mean age 29.3 years (SD = 6.3) participated in the study. Participants were assigned to two groups, the goal-setting group (n = 18) and the control group (n=18). Participants performed three wheelchair basketball tasks (passing, shooting, and dribbling) and three trials were performed for each task. Prior to the second and third trials, the goal-setting group participants set personal goals for each of the three tasks. In addition, considering the passing task they completed self-efficacy scales. Separate 2 x 3 (Group x Trial) repeated measures analysis of variance revealed significant interaction and main effects for the passing and dribbling tasks. The participants who set personal goals improved significantly their performance in the passing and dribbling tasks. Linear regression analysis showed that self-efficacy partially mediated the relationship between pre and post-intervention performance scores in the passing task. Results were discussed in terms of the usefulness of the goal setting method and the conditions under which goal setting is effective for wheelchair basketball players.
