Abstract:

This study investigates the differences in achievement motivation among national-level volleyball, football, and basketball players using Kamlesh Achievement Motivation Scale. Achievement motivation is crucial for the success and persistence of athletes, influencing their training, performance, and competitive outcomes. The sample comprised 150 national-level players, with 50 participants each from volleyball, football, and basketball. The research employed convenience sampling and statistical analysis through One-way ANOVA and post-hoc tests (Scheffe’s Test) to determine significant differences in motivation levels among these groups. The results indicated significant differences, with football and basketball players showing higher achievement motivation compared to volleyball players. These findings are consistent with existing literature, emphasizing the role of sport-specific dynamics in shaping motivation levels. The study suggests that tailored motivational strategies are needed for volleyball players, while a balance of intrinsic and extrinsic rewards should be maintained for football and basketball players. Future research should incorporate diverse sampling methods and explore additional factors influencing sport-specific motivation to enhance the academic and athletic performance of student-athletes.
