Abstract

The influence of fathers and mothers on sport's commitment among young soccer players
The current study assessed the influence of parents' involvement on youth soccer players' commitment. 893 soccer players answered the Parental Involvement Sport Questionnaire -PISQ- (Lee & Maclean, 1997) and the Sport Commitment Questionnaire -SCQ- (Scanlan et al., 1993). The PISQ measures parents' directive behaviours, praise and understanding, as well as, active implication in the sport activity. The SCQ measures commitment and its predicting factors. Results show that praise and understanding of parents favours youth soccer players enjoyment and commitment, decreasing in this way the probability of drop-out.
