Hines, Scott; Groves, David L.
Adolescence, v24 n96 p861-69 Win 1989
Examined effect of competition on development of self-esteem among 201 participants in a recreational basketball league. Found that coach's assessments of ability and intention of participation were important factors in positive self-esteem development. Social aspects of peer interaction and parent influence also contributed to positive self-esteem but were minor elements in comparison to impact of the coach. (Author/NB)
