Differences in Motivation and Self-efficacy among Young Elite and Amateur Soccer Players (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna undersökning var att studera eventuella skillnader i upplevd motivation och självförtroende mellan fotbollslandslagsspelande och icke fotbollslandslagsspelande ungdomar i åldern 14-19. Dessutom studerades eventuella skillnader mellan pojkarna och flickorna inom samma område. Total deltog 471 fotbollsspelande ungdomar varav 282 spelade i landslagen och 189 inte spelade i landslagen, 270 pojkar och 201 flickor. Spelarna fyllde vid ett tillfälle i enkäterna Grit scale, Sport Motivation Scale (SMS), The self-determination scale och Sport Confidence Inventory. Resultaten visade att det fanns skillnader mellan de landslagsspelande och icke landslagsspelande ungdomar inom variablerna upplevd motivation och upplevt självförtroende. Resultaten visade bland annat att de icke landslagsspelande ungdomarna upplever sig ha en högre grad av motivation än de landslagsspelande ungdomarna i denna studie. Dock visade resultaten att de landslagsspelande ungdomarna upplever sig ha ett högre självförtroende än de icke landslagsspelande ungdomarna i denna studie. Det finns även en signifikant skillnad mellan pojkar och flickor inom de två variablerna. Resultaten diskuteras i förhållande till uppsatsens teoretiska ramverk.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine if there is any possible differences in motivation and self-confidence among young soccer national team players and non-national soccer team players between 14-19 years old. The study also examined if there were any gender differences in the same areas. 471 young soccer players participated in this study, 282 of the players were national team players and 189 were not playing in any of the soccer national teams. 270 of the participants were boys and 201 were girls. A quantitative method with the questionnaires Grit Scale, Sport Motivation Scale (SMS), The self-determination scale and Sport Confidence Inventory was used. The results showed that the non-national players perceive themselves to have a higher level of motivation than the national team players in this study. The results also showed that the national team players perceived themselves to have a higher level of self-efficacy than the non-national team players in this study. There is also a significant gender difference within self-efficacy and motivation. The results are discussed in relation to the essay’s theoretical framework.
