Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att studera föräldrainvolvering och barns motivation till tennis utifrån föräldrars perspektiv relaterat till Tennis Syds pågående projekt Tennis10s. I studien deltog 64 föräldrar i åldrarna 31-58 år (m=41,69 sd=5,14) varav 26 var kvinnor (m=40,08 sd=4,98) och 38 män (m=42,79 sd=5,01) som hade barn aktiva inom tennis i åldrarna 6-11 år. I studien användes instrumenten Motivation Till Idrott samt Parental Involvement Sport Questionnaire. Resultaten visade att föräldrar rangordnade kompisskap, laganda, glädje och kompetens som de främsta motivationsfaktorerna till att sitt barn spelar tennis. Föräldrarna rangordnade beröm och förståelse samt aktiv involvering som de mest förekommande beteendena i sitt upplevda engagemang kring sitt barns tennis deltagande. Resultaten visade även en signifikant skillnad mellan hur fäder och mödrar använde sig av instruktivt beteende där fäder upplevde sig använda det i större utsträckning än mödrar. Resultaten diskuteras utifrån tidigare forskning och teoretisk referensram. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine parental involvement and children’s motivation to tennis based on the parents’ perspectives. The study was related to Tennis Syds ongoing project Tennis10s. There were 64 parents involved in age 31-58 (m= 41.69 sd= 5.14) of which 26 were women (m= 40.08 sd= 4.98) and 38 men (m= 42.79 sd= 5.01) who had children in ages 6-11 playing tennis. The study used the instruments Motivation To Sports and Parental Involvement Sports Questionnaire. The results indicated that parents rated friendship, team spirit, enjoyment and competence as the main motivational factors why their children are playing tennis. Parents rated praise and understanding and active involvement as the most frequent behaviors in their perceived involvement about their child's tennis participation. The results also indicated that fathers used instructive behavior more often than mothers. The results were discussed based on previous research and theoretical framework.
