Guiliano, Traci A.; Popp, Kathryn E.; Knight, Jennifer L.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v42 n3-4 p159-81 Feb 2000
Examined the extent to which women's childhood play activities predicted future sport participation. College athletes and nonathletes completed a survey on childhood play and adult sports experiences. Playing with masculine toys and games, playing in predominantly male or mixed groups, and being a tomboy characterized women who later became college athletes. (SM)
