Abstract [en]

The Relation Between Perceived Parent Created Motivation Climate and Elite Youth Soccer Player´s Moral Decisions in Sports: The importance of mothers

BACKGROUND: There is a widespread belief that participating in organized sports contributes to character building and the development of moral attitudes.  However, the direction of the outcomes is to a large extent dependent on the influence of social environmental factors. Using Achievement Goal Theory (AGT) as a framework, several researchers have examined the link between a coach created motivation climate and morality aspects while the influence of the perceived motivation climate created by parents and morality has largely been overlooked.  Parents have shown to be the most significant socialization agents for children, but participation in elite sports in specializing and the investment years require continuously parental involvement and are therefore hypothesized to influence the moral attitudes of elite athletes in later adolescents.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relation between perceived parent created motivational climate (PPCM) and elite youth soccer player´s moral decision making in sports.

METHODS: Swedish soccer players (n=144 males and 56 females) aged 16-19 years completed a questionnaire assessing perceptions of parent created motivational climate (PIMCQ-2) and Attitudes to moral decision in youth sport (AMDYSQ).

RESULTS: Bivariate correlations were consistent with AGT contentions indicating positive relations between Worry Conducive Climate (WCC) and Acceptance of Cheating (AOC) and negative relations between Learning and Enjoyment Climate (LEC) and AOC for both parents (see table). A linear multiple regression analysis using fathers and mothers WCC and LEC as independent variables and AOC as the dependent variable revealed that WCC created by mothers were the only significant predictor of AOC (β=.18, p<.05).

DISCUSSION: The results highlight the importance of creating a Learning and Enjoyment Climate and avoid creating a Worry Conducive Climate, especially by mothers, in order to enhance moral decision making in elite youth sports.
