Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to examine, in a population of ninth grade high-school students,whether autonomy support from parents and the fulfilment of basic psychological needspredicted participation in physical activity both in leisure time and in PE classes. Based onprevious research we hypothesised that autonomy support would have an indirect effect onparticipation in physical activity in leisure time and school sports through the psychologicalbasic needs.The study involved 193 students from ninth grade in the Swedish school system.Mediation analyses were performed to investigate the stated hypotheses. The results showedthat a positive indirect effect from autonomy support on participation in physical activity inleisure time through psychological basic needs. Further there was no statistically significantcorrelation between autonomy support, basic needs and participation in PE classes.Based on this study we concluded that autonomy supports as well as the psychologicalbasic needs are two important factors to focus on to get high-school students to be physicallyactive.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka huruvida autonomistöd från föräldrar samtuppfyllelse av grundläggande psykologiska behov predicerade deltagande i fysisk aktivitetbåde på fritiden och till skolidrott bland elever i årskurs 9. Baserat på tidigare forskning varvår hypotes att autonomistöd skulle ha en indirekt effekt på deltagande i fysisk aktivitet, bådepå fritiden samt till skolidrotten, via psykologiska grundbehov.I studien deltog 193 elever från årskurs 9 i det svenska skolsystemet. Medieringsanalyseranvändes för att undersöka de uppställda hypoteserna. Resultatet visade en positivt indirekteffekt från autonomistöd till deltagande i fysisk aktivitet på fritiden genom de psykologiskagrundbehoven. Vidare fanns det inget statistiskt signifikant samband mellan autonomistöd,grundbehoven och deltagande på idrottslektioner. Baserat på föreliggande studie drogförfattarna slutsatsen att autonomistöd samt de psykologiska grundläggande behoven är tvåviktiga faktorer att fokusera på för att fler elever skall bli fysiskt aktiva.
