Kinesiology 1088A/B
Bob Larose

The Practice Session as a Motivator 1) Increased motivation can be achieved through the introduction of variety or novelty during practice o There is a need to habituate skills and techniques for optimum performance behaviour o At some point, routine and repetition become boring o So, we need to teach or repeat the same skills but with a variation in drills 2) Motivation can be enhanced by changing practice routines o Order or sequence of practice segments can be altered o Change player positions or responsibilities for a portion of practice (also generates appreciation for roles of others) o Alter rules or adapt games to meet specific needs (focus on particular skills or strategies for all or part of a practice) o BUT – don’t change just for the sake of change (maintain some specific goal direction and explain the reason for the change(s) to the participants) 3) Motivation can be enhanced simply by providing special attention to the participant(s) o Hawthorne Effect (1939)  Purpose: to examine the influence of different aspects of the work environment on productivity and moral  Conditions in the Hawthorne plants were systemically altered (changed lighting and ventilation)  Changes produced an increase in productivity (regardless of what was changed, productivity increased)
