Abstract


Participation in sport is believed to contribute to physical well-being, social adjustment and self-esteem. In this study, the self-concept of adolescents in the Potchefstroom district was examined with relation to sport participation. 323 subjects of different race groups, aged 13-18 years, completed the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale (PCSS) and a sport participation related questionnaire. Significant differences were found between the self-concept of sport participants and non-participants (p ≤ 0.05). Differences were also found between the self-concept of sport participants and non-participants of all race groups with a significant difference (p ≤ 0.01) between the self-concept of sport participants and non-participants of the black race group. Sport participation appears to have a stronger effect on the self-concept of boys than of girls.
