Participación en el deporte y fair play

José A. Cecchini Estrada, Carmen González González-Mesa y Javier Montero Méndez

Universidad de Oviedo

Este estudio examinó si la participación en deportes de contacto medio repercute en las opiniones sobre las conductas y actitudes de fair play en el contexto deportivo, y si estos efectos están mediatizados por la orientación al ego. Los participantes fueron deportistas universitarios de alto nivel y deportistas profesionales (N= 131) de baloncesto y fútbol. Completaron cuestionarios valorando la participación en el deporte, las orientaciones de meta, y las actitudes y comportamientos de fair play. Los análisis del modelo de ecuación estructural indicaron que la participación en deportes de contacto medio predijeron la orientación al ego, los cuales sucesivamente predijeron bajos niveles de fair play. Los efectos directos de la participación del deporte en el fair play disminuyeron significativamente en la presencia de la orientación al ego, indicando que el último constructo mediatiza parcialmente la relación entre las dos primeras variables. Estos descubrimientos nos ayudan a entender mejor los procesos que operan en los deportes de contacto. Por último, se debaten sus implicaciones para eliminar las conductas antideportivas.

Sports participation and fair play. This study examined whether the participation in intermediate contact sports affects the opinions about the behaviors and attitudes of fair play in the sports context and whether these effects are influenced by ego orientation. The participants were high level sportsmen from university and professional basketball and football players (N = 131). They filled in questionnaires to assess their participation in sports, their goal orientations, and their fair play attitudes and behaviors. The analyses of the structural equation model indicated that participation in intermediate contact sports predicted ego orientation; these analyses consecutively predicted low levels of fair play. The direct effects of sports participation in fair play decreased significantly in the presence of ego orientation, indicating that the last construct partially mediates the relation between the first two variables. These discoveries help us to better understand the processes that operate in contact sports. Finally, their implications for eliminating unsportsmanlike behaviors are discussed.
