What are "Process" goals?

Q: What are "Process" goals?
A: There are two types of goals that swimmers can set:
• Outcome Goals: focus on the end result of performance. "Win, make
finals."
• Process Goals: relate to process of performance. "Breathe every 3rd
stroke, streamline."

Swimmers have much more control over Process Goals. Outcome Goals are uncontrollable since they also involve the performance of other competitors. Swimmers and coaches, especially at the Age Group level, should concentrate on Process Goals.
