The purpose of this study was to compare the way in which goal types change prior to an important match for elite and non-elite netball players. Thirty-six female university netball club players were divided into elite and non-elite groups depending on which team they played in at UWIC. They completed a State Goal Measure euestionnaire on four occasions prior to the match rating the extent to which they focused on each goal type and the importance that they attached to each goal type. Descrþive results indicated that non-elite players set significantly more outcome goals than elite players and that elite players focused more on performance goals than outcome goals at each occasion prior to the match. A series of two-factor mixed ANOVA's indicated signifrcant (p<.05) main effects for time on all goal types, with main effects for group on the extent to which pþers focused on process goals and the level of importance attached to using performance and process goals. The discussion focuses on the need to educate performers concerning the value to each goal type and when to use them most effectively.
