Factors Influencing College Selection by NCAA Division I, II, and III Lacrosse Players
Pauline, Jeffrey
ICHPER-SD Journal of Research, v5 n2 p62-69 2010
The purpose of this investigation was to examine factors influencing college selection by NCAA Division I, II and III lacrosse players. The Influential Factors Survey for Student-Athletes-Revised was used to collect data from 792 male and female collegiate lacrosse players. Descriptive statistics showed the most influential factors were: career opportunities after graduation, academic reputation of the university, overall reputation of the university, availability of academic program or major, and reputation of academic major or program. Descriptive analysis further revealed the academics category to have the greatest overall influence in the college selection process. A MANOVA revealed significant differences in the college selection process by gender and NCAA Division (p less than 0.05). Recommendations for collegiate lacrosse coaches and athletic department personnel as well as for future research are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
