Effekter av ett laginterventionsprogram på rollupplevelse och uppgiftsinrikatd lagsammangållning i ett junior ishockeylag (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purposes of this study was to examine what effects a specific team intervention program had on the ice-hockey players’ perceptions of their roles and the teams’ task cohesion. Further the purpose was to examine the benefits from having clear roles and strategies to develop role clarity. It was an intervention study with experimental design and a mixed method approach. Participants were two Swedish male junior ice hockey teams including one experimental team (n=14) and one control team (n=16). The intervention took place during competitive season and was based on communication training, mutual sharing and role development. The results showed that the role clarity decreased in both teams during the time of the intervention. The players in the intervention team felt significant more appreciated than the players in the control team. Overall did the intervention team have more positive trends than the control team. Perceived benefits from role clarity were good cooperation, communication, self-confidence and determination. Suggested strategies to develop role clarity were to communicate with team mates and coach, practice and adjust to the team. Positive effects from the intervention were improved communication, positive attitude, self-confidence, calmness, cohesion and openness.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilka effekter ett specifikt laginterventionsprogram hade på spelarnas upplevelse av sina roller och lagets uppgiftsinriktade lagsammanhållning. Vidare var syftet att  undersöka de fördelar som kommer med att ha en klar roll och vilka strategier som används för att skapa rollklarhet. Studien var en interventionsstudie med experimentell design med ett mixat tillvägagångssätt. Deltagare I studien var två juniorishockeylag; ett experimentlag (n=14) och ett kontrollag (n=16). Interventionen pågick under tävlingssäsong och baserades på communikationsträning, ömsesidigt utbyte och rollteori. Resultatet visade att rollklarheten minskade under interventionstiden. Spelarna i interventionslaget upplevde sig sifnifikant mer uppskattade än spelarna i kontrollaget. Överlag hade interventionslaget mer positiva trender i fler variabler än kontrollaget. Upplevda fördelar med klara roller var bra samarbete, kommunikation, självförtroende och beslutsamhet. Föreslagna strategier för utvecklande av rollklarhet var att kommunisera med lagkamrater och tränare, träna och anpassa sig till laget. Positiva effekter av interventionen var förbättrad kommunikation, positiv attityd, självförtroende, lugn, lagsammanhållning och öppenhet.
