Implicit Associations in Adolescent Sport

University of Toronto, Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education

Participation in sport has been linked positive body image, positive self-esteem, enhanced peer relationships and social skills, and overall positive youth development. Unfortunately, girls consistently report lower rates of sport participation and are less likely to enjoy and continue in sport compared to boys. In this study, we examine differences between adolescent boys and girls implicit and explicit perceptions of sport as well as their current engagement in sport.
