When an individual has made a decision based on an action or an inaction that resulted in an unexpected outcome, and the individual has a negative, emotional response to the decision they had made, a regret may be experienced. Regret is defined as the negative emotions experienced when an individual envisions a better result for a scenario had they made an alternative decision. In the world of athletics, athletes often tend to reflect and analyze past performances extensively which can affect future performances such as overthinking certain, in-game situations. Therefore, addressing regrets as learning opportunities for behavior modification is imperative to enhance and optimize future athletic performances. In this 6-week intervention period, athletes from a Collegiate Club Rowing team engaged in goal-setting with regrets checks to modify behaviors and reduce the amount of regrets one may experience. Though there was no significant difference in the reduction of regrets between the control group and the intervention group, as well as no significant difference in the reduction of regrets between the start of the intervention period to the end of the intervention period for the intervention group, results gave insight to what type of regrets these athletes experience as well as what has helped these athletes to reduce regrets. Future application to address regrets is further discussed in this thesis.
