dc.description.abstractThis study examined the separate and combined effects of negative reinforcement and signaling to improve the athletic performance of college athletes. Eleven female varsity lacrosse players who attended a private college in the southeastern United States participated in the study. The team coaches requested help with increasing “pass-naming,” (i.e., saying the name of an intended receiver before the ball was passed), to alert her of an incoming pass. The following procedure included a negative reinforcement component, whereby players could reduce daily required sprints by calling out intended receivers’ names to alert them of incoming passes. An additional procedure included affixing a colorful band on players’ sticks near the head—an area they frequently look at to ensure proper orientation—to prompt them to name passes. Results were evaluated using a reversal design, and showed the combined intervention phase—negative reinforcement plus signaling—was most effective at increasing pass-naming.en_US
