A great video showing how the theory of goal setting in sport is applied in practise. Goal setting is sometimes overlooked but can be a good tool to keep the focus of an athlete and also help achieve the eventual outcome goal. Coaches aswell as athletes can benefit using this tool to help self-regulate their programmes. Goal setting is used by many athletes, coaches and businessmen alike have used as a matter of course but in sport it is of particular use in assisting the break down of the process to identify the path for future performances. Athletes are more likely to stay focused on the task at hand with managable and specific goals they set themselves.
