AN EXAMINATION OF MULTIDIMENSIONAL SPORTSPERSONSHIP ORIENTATION LEVELS OF PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES

Çağatay Dereceli

Abstract


This study aims to obtain general information about the sportspersonship levels of athletes who compete professionally in volleyball, football, and basketball leagues. The study sample consists of 148 professional athletes competing in one 1st league basketball team (n: 15), two 2nd league volleyball teams (n: 48), and one 2nd league and two 3rd league football teams (n: 85). These are teams from Gaziantep, Adana, and Hatay provinces, in Turkey. The Multidimensional Sportspersonship Orientations Scale (MSOS-25) used in this study contains 25 items (5 items per subscale) and is being assessed on a 5-point scale. The original MSOS-25’s subscales include; Respect for social conventions (paraphrased as Compliance with social norms), Respect for the rules and the officials (paraphrased as Respect for rules and management), Respect for one's full commitment toward sport participation (paraphrased as Commitment to responsibilities in sports), and Respect and concern for the opponent (paraphrased as Respect for the opponent) (Balçıkanlı, 2010). Kruskal Wallis H was used to compare the subscales' data to age groups, branches, experience, and leagues. As the data of the MSOS's subscales are not normally distributed, the Mann Whitney U test was used to compare the subscales data to the gender and education level. The results showed significant differences between sportspersonship indices and, age, educational level, and league variables. However, there was no significant difference in terms of gender, branch, and experience.
