Expectations and aspirations of students-SMS players and their sports biography.
SMS sports level due to the participation of these young people in competitions of various rank, rich calendar of events, in the statistics and in the assessment of sports authorities of the then UKFiT systematically increased [Karwacki A., Kowalski Z., Winiarski Z., 1997], However, it was not a staggering gain in results. As a result of the research carried out in 1997 the year we stated, that the respondents of 5 They had SMS in the country: And sports class – 22,9%, Sport class II – 25,6% and 3rd sports class – 22,9%. Other respondents (18,3%) they didn't have a sports class, or they didn't give it. On the other hand, they represented the highest level of sports together 19 students with an International Master Class (3,9% subjects) and the National Championship class (3,5% subjects).
Thus, in the examined group of adolescents, athletes with an average sports level dominated. 1/3 of the surveyed athletes presented the highest sports level not only in the youth sport category. Their results in science should also be added to this sporting characteristic. 30,4% of the surveyed youth assessed them as good. More than 40,4% of the respondents assessed their results jointly; as sufficient or more than sufficient. Only 9% of the surveyed student-athletes assessed their school achievements as very good, a 9,7% more than good.
When assessing the conditions for achieving success in competitive sports, the surveyed students most often emphasized the position of "other" – tab. 12.9. The general conclusion from the presented data was this, that far too many elements prevented this youth from being a good athlete, and some of the reasons mentioned by them included in the category "other", e.g.. inadequate body structure, short stature, poor efficiency and endurance – they were deeply disturbing.
The test results are presented in the table 12.10,12.11 i 12.12 constituted answers to a number of questions bothering the sports community about sports effects and results and what to do to make them better?. Our conclusion in this regard was this, that: sports selection of these youth should be carried out in accordance with art, that it is also necessary to work with these young people better, involving them in the achievement of their sports goals, that they should be set these goals every year. Moreover, these young people should be made aware of the special attractiveness of the role of an athlete, the roles of competitive sport, sports event, sports competitions! Or more broadly in social life!
This is a job for people working with SMS, Polish Sports Associations and current government authorities, although these people have different roles to play in solving the signaled problems.
Speaking of sports effects, we mentioned the sphere of motivation and its various layers, sources. One of them is the self-awareness of the participation of athletes in competitive sports and the resulting state of knowledge about. competitive sport. Therefore, we wanted to know which elements mobilized them the most, and which discouraged from training work, sports competition to the entire training process. Among the most motivating training stimulators, the respondents of 26,8% they passed the result in the competition, w 22,5% want to be better, w 14,7% personal ambitions, w 13,2% victory a 13,1% gave no answer, only 1,9% or 5 athletes reported, that the trainer mobilizes them to train! The role of the trainer seems to be a key link in the training process and training system of sports youth. In light of these data, the role of the coach was pitiful. Ten, The seemingly radical conclusion was also confirmed by further results of the presented research. The opposite of the previous perspective of discouraging athletes from the training process, showed how much of this training system bothered these young people. The most often discouraging reasons mentioned by the surveyed athletes were given: monotony and routine of training -19% and other" (a very extensive collection of factors from the privatization of the authorities, through the weather to loneliness – it gave such reasons 19,8%). 16,3% of the respondents mentioned the trainer as an element of discouragement, 8,9% athletes also mentioned bad training and school conditions as the reason. These are not all reasons, of course. What discourages the surveyed athletes from training or determines their training enthusiasm does not yet determine their presence in training classes.. There are various reasons for absences from training. 31,9% of the respondents leave the training because of their studies and other duties, 21% athletes cited fatigue and reluctance as the reason. Equally, at the level 14,4% and 13,6% the respondents mentioned illness as the reason for their absence, injuries and family matters, e.g.. departure home, and approx 16% respondents did not answer.
