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
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.
