Silvia Regina Deschamps y Dante De Rose Júnior

The purpose of this study was to verify the influence of psychological training in mood states and technical performance of high level basketball players. The sample were com-posed by 17 basketball players, competing for two teams at Regional Championship in the State of São Paulo, in 2007. The teams were divided in two groups: Team A (experimental group -with psychological training program- n=9) and Team B (control group -without psychological training program- n=8). Both teams answered the following inventory: BRAMS (Brazilian version of POMS – in four different moments (M1, M2, M3 and M4). The teams were also assessed by a Technical Efficienfy Index (EFI - adopted by Brazilian Basketball Confederation) during six games. Despite the brief period of intervention it is possible to consider that the psychological training seemed to influence mood states in both teams, mainly after M2, when team A showed a considerable improvement in all factors. Results showed that there was no correlation between each mood state and technical performance index for team A at any moment of the study.
