Abstract: There is no doubt that determination and self confidence have relationship with high athletic performance. However the focus of this study is to determine whether the birthdate of the athlete and the duration of club membership will influence the two dependent variables. Descriptive survey research design was used. Subjects comprised 100 male football players from four clubs that registered for 2007/2008 NFF cup competition. Tutko and Richards Motivational Rating Scale (1980) was used to collect the data. The chi-square analysis that was used did not reject the four hypotheses. The study concluded that at any age and no matter the duration of a player in the club, determination with self confidence to win, is a significant factor.
