|Abstract: ||Embedded in achievement goal theory (Ames, 1992; Meece, Anderman & Anderman,
2006), this study examined how perceptions of coach and peer motivational climate in
youth sport predicted moral attitudes, emotional well-being, and indices of behavioral
investment in a sample of British adolescents competing in regional leagues. Adopting a
longitudinal perspective, measures were taken at the middle and the end of a sport season,
as well as at the beginning of the following season. Multilevel modeling analyses showed
that perceptions of task-involving peer and coach climates were predictive of more
adaptive outcomes compared to perceptions of ego-involving peer and coach climates.
Predictive effects differed as a function of time and outcome variable under investigation.
The results indicate the importance of considering peer influence in addition to coach
influence when examining motivational climate in youth sport.|
