The study examines the mediating role of motivation among the nexus of self-efficacy for self-regulated learning, self-efficacy for achievement, and team performance. The data was gathered through questionnaires from different basketball team players, while smart-PLS was executed for data analysis. The results revealed that self-efficacy for self-regulated learning and self-efficacy for achievement had a positive association with motivation and team performance.
