Goal Orientations of Adolescents, Coaches, and Parents: Is There a Convergence of Beliefs?
Givvin, Karen B.
Journal of Early Adolescence, v21 n2 p227-47 May 2001
Examined relation between goal orientations of 12- to 15-year-old competitive swimmers, and those of parents, and coaches. Found that adolescents' self-reported goal orientations correlated highly with their perceptions of goal orientations of their significant adults but not with self-reports of their significant adults. Adolescents believed their attitudes about swimming were more affected by their coaches than their parents. (Author/KB)
