Used data from the first followup of the National Education Longitudinal Study to examine predictors of school-based sports participation during 10th grade. Sports participation during adolescence related to gender, coming from a high socioeconomic status background, engaging in other outdoor activities, admiring an athlete, self-perception of popularity and social desirability, and prior participation in athletics.
