From the Paper:

"How well adolescents perform in competitive swimming is related to many factors. One of these is how much self-efficacy they have, another is the involvement that the parents have in the child's life, and another is the skill that these children display. All of these things work together to build self-confidence and psychological skills begin to develop from this. Not all children develop these psychological skills, and whether these skills are available has much to do with the physical prowess that these children display. There are concerns about whether physical skills bring psychological confidence, or whether psychological confidence helps to bring out the physical skills that these children have. Either way, both are very important to the children and how well they do at competitive swimming and other activities."
