This study aims to examine the relationships among cohesiveness, self-efficacy, collective efficacy, perceived efficacy by teammates, and perceived efficacy by coaches and team performance. The sample was formed by 235 male football players, ranging in age from 15 to 19 years old. We used different instruments to assess cohesion and perceived efficacy, while perfor-mance was measured by classification. Results showed a positive relationship between cohesion regarding collective efficacy and self-efficacy. Moreover, we can affirm that players that perceived higher collective efficacy levels and players who are perceived by coaches as more efficacy are players who belonged to teams that reached greater performance at the end of the season.
