Abstract

The aim of the research is to examine athlete perceptions of the original performance profile (Butler & Hardy, 1992) compared to the recently revisited model by Gucciardi and Gordon (2009a) in order discuss the effectiveness of the additions made and determine whether the extension of the profiling is beneficial to the psychological assessment tool’s procedure. In the study, 3 semi-professional rugby union club players and 3 amateur university soccer players took part in singular profiling sessions for both of the performance profiles, focus group interviews evaluating the specific profiles were conducted after each session, with a comparative interview evaluating their varied experiences between the two performance profiles undertaken to conclude the study. Athletes found that the experience and effectiveness of the revisited model was not superior to the original profiling technique, however they believed that a hybrid version of the two techniques would culminate in a more effective approach to the profiling intervention. Athletes also expressed that the hierarchal order and range of convenience extensions introduced by Gucciardi and Gordon (2009a) have the potential to be applied to the profiling procedure to use the psychological tool as an educational tool to develop youth players knowledge and understanding of their sport.
