Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to contrast the effectiveness of modified and traditional netball for juniors. Despite the considerable controversy which has surrounded the appropriateness of modified and adult versions of youth sport, the area has received very little empirical attention. By examining a sport which is dominated by females, this investigation is also considered important in that it supplies information about the psychological effects of organized sport on girls. Comparisons between the two approaches to netball were made in terms of young athletes' skill level, self-esteem and self-competence, anxiety and attitudes as well as coaches' behaviours at matches and training sessions.
