Abstract:

We investigated potential differences in the levels of sport commitment and its associated antecedents on the basis of sport experience, level of participation, and participation method with 127 individuals competing in the 2010 National College Dance Sport (ballroom dancing) Championship in Taipei, Taiwan. Participants completed the Sport Commitment Scale for Adult Dance Sport Competitors, derived from Wilson's Exercise Commitment Scale (ECS; Wilson et al., 2004). We found that there were significant differences according to sport experience, level of participation, and participation method in relation to enjoyment, involvement alternatives, involvement opportunities, social support, social constraints, and personal investment.
