Abstract: In this study total twenty five rural female footballers (n=25) of Kendriya Vidhaylaya, Barwani, Madhya Pradesh those who represented in national championship were selected as the subject of under 14 to 17 years of age. Questionnaire was distributed to the gymnasts and under the supervision of their coaches and the investigator the data was recorded appropriately. The study was delimited on the Questionnaire of Achievement Motivation i.e. Sports Achievement Motivation by Dr. M.L. Kamesh. As per the reported findings 68 % of girls possess low level of achievement motivation whereas 28 % of girls found moderate level of motivation and only 4 % of girls consist highly motivated. As we can see that most of the girls found low in achievement motivation which may be due to their rural background because in Indian rural conditions parents and their children are not much aware about the resources and facilities which enhance their motivation level, further the data was collected during their training period where the motivational techniques might not be used.
