Schilling, Tammy A.
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v72 n4 p355-65 Dec 2001
Examined program commitment over time among African American secondary school students involved in an extended day physical activity program designed to develop personal and social responsibility skills. Student interviews indicated that program organization, personal characteristics, development of interpersonal relationships, and program environment influenced program commitment. Type of activity positively influenced commitment, though specific activity was a potential barrier to commitment. (SM)
