Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of participation in interscholastic competitive basketball on the motional behavior of boys in junior high school. To collect the data pertinent to this Investigation at questionnaire was used for the purpose of rating eleven forms of emotional behavior of boys participating in the basketball programs of two junior high schools. The questionnaire provided for a three-category rating which represented the subjective judgements of the players, coaches, fathers, and mothers. On the basis of the collected information the implications were that participation in the competitive basketball programs had no unfavorable effect on the boys. Some of the boys were affected positively in some phases of their emotional behavior. Some of the boys did not seem to be so positively affected. The players personal appraisal of their behavior was inconsistent with their observed behavior rated by the coaches, fathers, and mothers.
