Sample text

This interaction could be explained by the formula P¼DÂHÂI where P is performance, D is drive or arousal, H is habit strength and I is incentive value. By ‘habit strength’ Hull and Spence mean how well learned a skill is. If their theory is correct, this has a major impact on the arousal–learning inter-relationship. If high levels of arousal were likely to lead to a breakdown in performance, it would be foolish to have beginners practise while in a highly aroused state. On the other hand, experienced performers need to produce optimal performance when highly aroused.

Similar practices can be seen in most sports. Many Rugby Union coaches teach their front row forwards to deliberately collapse the scrum, something not only illegal but also dangerous. A friend, teaching physiology on a Canadian National Coaching Certification Program course, told me that one of the ice hockey coaches in the class spent most of his time trying to get a boxing coach to give him some tips that he could pass on to his players when they got into a fight during an ice hockey game. If you have a ‘win at all costs’ mentality, your code of ethics will be insensitive to cheating.

SUMMARY 23 When you ask athletes what they admire most in a coach the word ‘honesty’ is probably the most commonly heard. Coaches who ‘play games’ by telling lies to players are soon found out. They become mistrusted not just by the athlete to whom the lies were told but also to those who witnessed the fact. Honesty and fairness from those in positions of authority over us are characteristics we all admire. If athletes perceive the coach as being honest and fair they will accept decisions even if they think that the coach is wrong.
