The main aim of this work is to describe the valuation of players and trainers concerning the perceived motivational climate and the attitudes of fairplay. We also evaluate the level of satisfaction of the players in the football training sessions, as well as the scores on the criteria of perceived ability in the players. At the same time, we compare the valuation with respect to the level to which both the players and the trainers belong. The specimen group was composed by 176 players, 104 juniors (9-12 years) and
72 infants (13-14 years). Also took part in the study 10 trainers of junior teams and 6 of infant teams. The most noticeable differences were seen in toughness and diversion. In the first, those who had a more favourable attitude were the infants and in the second, the juniors. We also found significant differences between “perceived motivational climate of implication in the task”, with higher scores in the junior players in the variable “victory” with higher scores in the infants and finally in the
variable “perceived ability” based on normative criteria, where the infant players were the ones who obtained significantly higher scores. Among the trainers no differences were seen with regards to their levels (categories) of training, in any of the variables analysed.
