Baseball Goal-Setting

•  Professional baseball players set individual-goals & write them down.

•  Youth baseball players should list obtaining college baseball scholarship as primary long-term goal.

•  Performance-goals must be established each year that are attainable in short term.


Functions of Goal-Setting

 Provides direction to focus energy.

•  Provides feedback on progress.

•  Provides valuable source of motivation


Principles of Goal-Setting

•  Emphasize performance & de-emphasize game outcome.

•  Be measurable & specific, as opposed to vague & general.

•  Be challenging & realistic

•  Be stated positively, not negatively.

•  Include short term (daily), intermediate, & long-term (dream-goals)

•  Be explicit & write goals.
