    Motives, Motivation, and Motivational Climate of Young Norwegian Swimmers, and their Parents’ Belief

    Motivation is important for enjoyment, skill development, and persistence in swimming. The quality and direction of motivation is influenced by a swimmer’s perceived motivational climate, which is created by coaches and parents. The theoretical framework in this study by Ingeborg Ljødal and colleagues combines self-determination theory and achievement goal theory, to analyze the motives and motivation of swimmers and the influence of social climate on their motivation.
