ABSTRACT
Few studies have evaluated the role of specific sport goal orientations on the use of adaptive behaviors and attitudes in achievement settings other than sport. We examined the relationship between dispositional goal orientations in sport and various academic strategies and attitudes among 323 high school student-athletes. Task-oriented athletes were hypothesized to make greater use of academic learning strategies, and to report higher educational goals than their ego-oriented counterparts. MANCOVA revealed that task-oriented sport participation had the greatest impact on academic strategy use. Mixed orientation athletes (i.e., high task-high ego), however, reported the highest levels of educational goals and academic self-efficacy. Results are discussed in terms of athletes' access to competence information.
