The Relationship of Various Psychosocial Variables on the Positioning of College Ice Hockey Players.
Krotee, March L.; La Point, James D.
This paper presents the results of research conducted to investigate the relationship of various psychosocial variables on the positioning of college ice hockey players. The California Personality Inventory (CPI) was administered to the NCAA Championship ice hockey team at the University of Minnesota, and a separate subjective psychosocial rating was gathered from the coaching staff at the University of Minnesota concerning other related psychosocial characteristics and categorized by position. It was hypothesized that college ice hockey players with certain psychosocial characteristics would be assigned certain designated positions (ADP) and that the ADP concept may be related to other situational variables. The data indicated that there were significant differences in the relationships between ADP and the psychosocial variables of the number of goals scored, sense of well being, and achievement via conformance and height. This psychosocial information is perceived by the author as being valuable to the coach who must make the decision as to the ADP and assume the responsibility for helping each individual perform to his fullest capacity.
