In undergoing high intensity and high performance training, an athlete will sometimes face issues involving physical or mental aspects. Things that have been observed or have no researches on it are related to training methods with the impact of motivation and mental toughness. This study is intended to look at the effects of specific training methods such as circuit training methods, interval training methods and traditional training methods on motivation and mental toughness and their contributions upon primary school hockey athletes. Based on the references from previous studies, the researcher has used the combined design of two research methods, namely quasi-experimental and survey method. Sports Motivation Scale (SMS) 28 Items and Mental Toughness Questionnaire (MTQ) 48 Items have been used as a tool of motivational and mental toughness measurement instruments in pre and post-test. A total of 30 respondents of 11 and 12 -year-old primary school hockey athletes were selected in purposive sampling and distributed equally into two training methods treatment groups (circuits, R1 and interval, R2) and one control group (traditional, K) and had undergone pre-test, intervention (for treatment group) and post-test. The study data obtained were analyzed with non-parametric methods by using Spearman's Correlation analysis method for training methods with motivation and mental toughness and Chi-Square Test for contribution of training methods to motivation and mental toughness. The results of the analysis found that there was a negative significant relationship [p = .937, r = -.016 (pre); p = .483, r = -.138 (post)] between training methods with motivation and a positive significant relationship [p = .474, r = -.136 (pre); p = .634, r = -.091 (post)] between training methods and mental toughness. Whereas the contribution of training methods to motivation and mental toughness shows the value of Pearson Chi-Square on Asymptotic Significance (2-sided) is .157 which provides significant relevance and contribution.
