The article provides a system empirical analysis of the motivating factors that affect the motivation of an athlete. The field of sports is unique in its nature in terms of tools and methods of motivating athletes. Conducting a comprehensive analysis of the psychological characteristics of the athlete’s motivation settings and effective mechanisms of influence on the psyche, the study of his value orientations - all this is the key to the successful disclosure of the athlete’s potential, as well as its implementation at the highest possible level. This, in turn, ensures the achievement of high results in the sport by the individual himself, the sports school to which he belongs and, finally, will determine the probability of the national sport success at the international level.

The high degree of relevance of the research topic predetermined its choice and implementation mechanisms, including, among other methods of questionnaires and continuous interviews of athletes.

The purpose of the study is to identify the current settings of the motivational framework of the athlete at the present stage of the development of the society (followed by a comparative analysis with similar parameters characteristic of the past historical period) on the basis of the developed mechanisms and tools for quantitative measurement of basic motivational factors.

The results obtained made it possible to identify the value orientations and motivational settings of modern athletes, to identify their changes over time, which served to develop directions for the possible development of the theory and practice of sports psychology.


Keywords: motivational framework of the athlete; motivation index; process-dynamic approach; system analysis; material components of motivation; spiritual components of motivation; psychological impact; psychological adjustment.
