Self-determination and perceived competence as antecedents for participants dropping out of sport
Youren, Carolyn Gaye (1998) Self-determination and perceived competence as antecedents for participants dropping out of sport. Research Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.
The main purpose of this study was to explore persistence and discontinuation choices made by participants involved in competitive sport activities using cognitive evaluation theory. Deci and Ryan (1985) argue that changes to self-determination and perceived competence generate comparative changes in motivation. This approach provided a theoretical framework for exploring why some people choose to continue whereas others dropout of sport.
