Background: Adolescent's perfectionism relates primarily to stress symptoms. Relationship between aspects of perfectionism and sports performance in no-stress training accompanied by inconsistent results.
Objective: The purpose of the present study was to investigate how different aspects of perfectionism predict futsal skill performances during stressful training in the adolescent.
Methods: Participants were 101 adolescent futsal players. They completed perfectionism inventory, then performed a futsal skill during three blocks of four trials. Two indices took into account: time and performance.
Results: There was a significant relationship between positive perfectionism and performance during blocks 1 and 3 when negative perfectionism was considered. A significant positive relationship between negative perfectionism was observed with both time and performance during block 3. Also, a significant positive correlation in terms of the interaction between high positive and high negative perfectionism with the performance during block 3 was found.
Conclusions: The findings suggest that positive perfectionism in athletes during training was correlated with high levels of performance, but when crossing blocks, that relationship removed. Also, after observing other's performance, performance in individuals with high negative perfectionism during consecutive trials improved. When the interaction between positive and negative perfectionism was considered to predict sports performance, performance in individuals with high positive perfectionism during stressful training impaired.
