Helping Lucille Regain Her Soccer Success
Read the following case study and submit a program for helping Lucille regain her motivation by overcoming her outcome goal orientation. After several years of training, Lucille has finally received a scholarship offer to play division one soccer. Outcome goals have always been her driving force, be the fastest, toughest, score more goals, and get more assists. Unfortunately, after an All-American high school career, Lucille has a rough beginning at college. Her shooting and passing accuracy is struggling. To make matters worse, she is struggling a bit with minor injuries, which makes it difficult to maintain consistent playing time.
As Lucille’s frustrations continue to increase, she begins to no longer enjoy practice and even competition. She blames her poor performance on injuries, playing time, field conditions and teammates unwilling to pass the ball. The outcome goal orientation now seems to produce a lower self-confidence, self-doubt, and less motivation.
