Sport Education and Extracurricular Sport Participation: An Examination Using the Trans-Contextual Model of Motivation
Wallhead, Tristan L.; Hagger, Martin; Smith, Derek T.
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v81 n4 p442-455 Dec 2010
In this study, we used the trans-contextual model of motivation (TCM) to examine the effect of Sport Education (SE) on students' participation in a voluntary lunch recess sport club. A total of 192 participants (ages 9-14 years) completed measures of the TCM constructs before and after a 12-week SE intervention period. Participants had the opportunity to participate in weekly, voluntary lunch recess sport club sessions during the intervention period. SE elicited a moderate increase in autonomous motives in physical education. The TCM accounted for a significant proportion of the explained variance in lunch recess sport club intention and participation. Autonomy-supportive curricular models, such as SE, may have the potential to facilitate transfer of motivation and participation in physical activity from a physical education to an extracurricular context.
