Abstract

The present study examined the associations and development ofmotivational climate, achievement goals, and physical functional skills inyoung floorball players, as simultaneous antecedents and outcomes ofachievement goals and the game of floorball warrant further studies. Atotal of 283 male players with a mean age of 11.49 (± .27) years in thebeginning of the data collection were followed across two measurementphases, separated by a 12 months interval. Players completed physicalfunctional skill tests and self-report questionnaires. The findings showedthat the perceptions of task-involving coaching practices that encouragelearning and effort over competition were moderately related withmastery-approach, whereas perceptions of ego-involving climate weremoderately linked with performance-approach and performance avoidance.Higher mastery-avoidance was also linked with weaker aerobic endurance.Finally, performance-approach, mastery-approach, performance-avoidance,running speed, aerobic endurance, and lower limb strenght improved overtime. To reduce negative perceptions of mastery-avoidance and developyoung floorball players’ physical functional skills, it could be important thatcoaches promote appealing aerobic endurance activities. For instance, byproviding opportunities to design or lead an activity or through formulatingoptions representing a wide range of endurance training activities,especially among players with higher perceptions of mastery-avoidance.
