Goals also differentiate athletes in terms of the perceived benefits of practice. Thus, ego-oriented athletes consider practice a means of demonstrating competence relative to other athletes, whereas their taskoriented counterparts view practice as a means to foster team cohesion and skill development (Lochbaum & Roberts, 1993).

Further, Spray and Biddle (1997) found that students who volunteered to participate in physical education were higher in a task orientation than those who did not participate.
