Abstract

The present investigation tested the conceptual links between goal orientations and achievement anxiety which have been suggested by Roberts (1986) and Dweck and Leggett (1988). One hundred and eleven junior fencers between the ages of 10 and 18 completed a series of questionnaires measuring achievement goals (TEOSQ), perceived ability and multidimensional state anxiety (CSAI-2) on four occasions prior to a regionalfencing tournament. Hierarchical regression analyses indicated that perceived ability was a consistent predictor of all three dimensions ofthe CSAI-2 at each different time period. In addition, an ego orientation was found to contribute significantly to the prediction of cognitive anxiety on two occasions prior to competition. When goals assessedimmediately before performing were entered as predictors of CSAI-2 dimensions, a task orientation was found to contribute to the predictionof both somatic anxiety and confidence. The findings also suggest that an awareness of an athlete's achievement goals and perceived abilitywill allow coaches a more parsimonious understanding of the motivational antecedents of precompetitive anxiety than previous approaches which have considered other motivational constructs to be crucial antecedents of precompetitive affect (e.g., Swain & Jones, 1992).
