Abstract:

In this study we posited that sport participation would be positively associated with self-esteem through the mediating variables of perceived peer acceptance and sport self-concept. A survey was completed by 489 Taiwanese college students using a 2-stage sampling design and structural equation modeling revealed that sport participation positively predicts peer acceptance and sport self-concept. Additionally, peer acceptance and sport self-concept were found to positively predict self-esteem.
