Author(s): Shahina Sherani and Sophie Titus

Abstract: In the world of sports, the drive to succeed is a crucial factor that separates the good from the great. This drive, often referred to as athletic achievement motivation, is the fuel that propels athletes to push beyond their limits and strive for excellence. In the world of sports, there are two main categories of athletes: those who compete as part of a team and those who compete as individuals. Both types of athletes have their own unique motivations and challenges when it comes to achieving success. This research, will explore the differences between team and individual athletes. The sample for the study consists of 30 individual and 30 team game players those who had competed in Inter-Collegiate tournaments of M.D.S. University, Ajmer. The Standardized Dr. M.L. Kamlesh Sports Achievement Motivation Test (SMAT) was employed for the purpose of the study. The results of the study indicated that Individual game players had slightly lower achievement motivation than Team game players. This type of study is beneficial for physical educators and coaches to improve performance through achievement motivation.
