This study assessed the relationships between other-efficacy, relation-inferred self-efficacy, self-efficacy, and performance. The participants were three head coaches and 40 athletes from three NCAA women’s soccer teams. New measures of self-efficacy, other-efficacy, and relation-inferred self-efficacy were developed using Bandura’s guidelines. Performance was measured by the number of times the athletes completed a soccer task successfully. Analysis indicated that none of the efficacy measures could predict performance. Results did show a significant con-elation between relation-inferred self-efficacy and the self-efficacy measures, indicating that the self-efficacy an athlete has to perfonn a task was similar to what they perceived their coaches’ perceptions would be.
