The importance of psychological skills as mediating factors in athletic success have been well documented. In particular, research has generally supported the efficacy of mental imagery as an effective technique in enhancing physical skill and manipulating psychological skills, however the mechanisms for this have been equivocal (Driskell, Cooper & Moran, 1994). Hall, Mack, Paivio, & Hausenblas (1998) have identified five functions of imagery and have suggested specific outcomes are favoured by specific functions of imagery.
