This study investigates the relationship between lesson implementation and intrinsic motivation of pre-service physical educators in Universities in the Border Provinces of Southern Thailand. This research adopts a cross-sectional research design. The instrument for data collection has three sections (backgrounds, intrinsic motivation for teaching, and lesson implementation) adopted from Tulyakul (2019). The participants are 141 pre-service physical educators in five universities in the border provinces of Southern Thailand. The findings reveal that the levels of lesson implementation and intrinsic motivation are high. Hence, there is a positive relationship between the lesson implementation and the intrinsic motivation of pre-service physical educators. Consequently, it is recommended that to improve the teaching effectiveness of pre-service physical educators in the universities in the border provinces of Southern Thailand, they should enhance their ability in lesson implementation and develop their intrinsic motivation in teaching.
