It is determined that two dispositional points exist, which differentiate between individuals in their goal perspective decisions (i.e. task and ego orientation) in relation to the way a person judges his/her competence and defines achievement success. Motivational climate in a sport setting can be characterized as more or less task or ego involving which is related to the athlete’s motivational responses, i.e. goal perspective choice in the training process. The sample the comprised of 144 male Croatian basketball players from 9 teams, aged 14-16 years. They responded to the LAPOPECQ questionnaire that was constructed to measure the learning and the performance orientation in PE classes. By applying this instrument to the sports setting it was expected to obtain an insight into the factor structure which defines the motivational climate of young basketball players based on their achievement orientation (learning or performance orientation) in basketball training. According to the principal components factor analysis (GK - criterion) and after fixing the principal components of intercorrelation items matrix, these results mostly confirmed Papaioannou’s model because 23 out of 27 items defined the same hypothetical factors as in Papaioannou’s solution, and 45.71% of variance was explained by the questionnaire items. The first factor was defined as the learning oriented environment occurring as a result of the athlete’s satisfaction in learning. The second factor suggested a climate in which success is defined by the normative based criteria of evaluation. The third factor explained the athlete’s worries about mistakes. The fourth one implied a climate in which success is defined by the ability criteria based on the outcome without effort, and the last factor implied a learning orientation climate, which is created by the coach’s behaviour.
