Goal Setting

Goal setting is reported as one of the most important motivational techniques relevant to competitive sport.
Achieving performance goals in sport is an important part of development.
Individuals found to be setting goals tend to have more positive outcomes on their development journeys.
To support progression on your development program, performance goals involve striving to achieve a standard or reference level
Possibly the most popular approach to performance goal setting is the ‘SMART’ goal strategy
Specific – Measurable – Achievable – Realistic – Time-Bound.
Planned Activity Example:
 
 
Specific
 I want to improve my speed and agility as I feel it will improve my game
 
Measurable
 I will book a physical testing session with Soccer PDP to understand better the areas I should work on
 
Achievable
 Through a measured and achievable program, I will work hard to improve my speed and agility.
 
Realistic
 
 
Time-Bound 
 I understand I may never be the fastest or most agile player in the world, but I know through hard work and practice I can marginally improve my speed and agility.
 
I will work on the program for 8-weeks, then I will reassess my performance after this period of hard work.
