Goal setting is one of the most effective techniques developed for enhancing performance. This paper has presented an outline of how the principles of goal setting might be applied to offensive football.

As teams and situations vary greatly, it was not the focus of this paper to provide exact goals and examples for every situation, but rather to suggest how the principles of goal setting might be adapted to an offensive football setting, and to suggest resources that a coach might use in adapting this program to fit his/her particular needs. Goal setting enables coaches to be sure that appropriate amounts of time are spent on all areas relating to football, and that the time spent on these areas is maximized. By using the principles outlined in this paper, a coach can begin to apply the powerful techniques of goal setting to their teams practices and games, and begin using it to effectively to enhance team performance levels.
