A total of 153 male and female secondary school pupils were involved in the study over a period of seven weeks. The pupils completed a pre- and post-intervention survey assessing their achievement goal orientations, beliefs about the causes of success, task choice, satisfaction, boredom and attitude toward athletics. Additionally the post-intervention survey assessed the pupils’ perceptions of the motivational climate. Results revealed pupils’ perceptions of a mastery climate and significant increases in their task orientation, preference for challenging tasks, satisfaction and positive attitude as a result of experiencing the mastery programme. These findings are discussed with regard to the implications for physical educators.
