The objective of this research is to identify activities under the perception of rugby players more influence in improving the performance and verify the relationship between the dimensions of concentration, physical effort, fun and performance. The study involved rugby players at the regional (n = 8) and national level (n = 21) aged between 13 and 42 years. As a measuring instrument, a questionnaire adapted from valid and reliable in previous studies (Deakin and Cobley, 2003) was used. The questionnaire focuses on the perception that rugby players have regarding the types of activities carried out around the four dimensions mentioned above. The results show that regardless of skill level, players say a competition match is the most important activity to improve their performance. These findings are discussed and contrasted with specific prior existing literature.
