The main objective of this study is figuring out relationship between internal and external motivation, and anxiety (trait-state) in young Archery athletes. The confusion that arose in the field federation, led us to investigate the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and their anxiety. Samples in this study were 90 female athletes with a mean age of 15.3 IMI intrinsic motivation questionnaire which includes the following measures, interest, enjoyment, perceived competence, effort, value and importance to measure intrinsic motivation and Anxiety Inventory STAI is used for anxiety. The questionnaire was given to the athletes by coaches. This study is applicable and the questionnaire method is descriptive. The purpose of this research is to find the relationship between intrinsic motivation and anxiety, also comparisons between trait and competitive anxiety. The correlation coefficient is a statistical method. The participants had very low intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation was very high state of anxiety. When athletes are less motivated it causes a lot of anxiety in their competition especially, when their trait anxiety was too low. Coaches should enhance intrinsic motivation of youth and create the field for them.
