Greendorfer, Susan L.; Ewing, Martha E.
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v52 n3 p301-10 Oct 1981
A study of the sport socialization of children between the ages of nine and 12 indicated that White children are influenced by specific agents of socialization such as fathers and teachers, while Black children are influenced by situational and contextual variables. Noteworthy from the gender comparisons is the predominantly same-sex influence on children regardless of race. (FG)
