The purpose of this study is to examine lacrosse performance among athletes. The measurement tool was data collection of good plays and bad plays over an eight-week period, and a survey designed by the researcher and handed out after the data was collected. The researcher hypothesized between two groups, meditation and routine, there would be no difference in lacrosse performance over an eight-week period. The data collected was insignificant and varied from group to group. Therefore, the null hypothesis was confirmed. Research in the area of pre-performance routines and meditation before athletic competition should continue to be reviewed and implemented and improved upon in future studies and then applied to athletes across the country.
