Author(s): Vivek Kumar, Amrinder Singh, Jaspal Singh Sandhu, Neha Gupta and R.M. Pandey

Abstract: The purpose of the study was “Comparison of sports motivation among contact and non-contact sports persons”. The subjects for this study were district, state, national and international level sports persons. Total 500, including 250 from contact and 250 from non-contact sports persons between 18-40 years of age were selected. The sports motivation scale (sms28) developed by Luc G. Pelletier, Michelle Fortier was applied for this study. The selected variables of sports motivation were intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation and amotivation. The obtained data were analyzed by applying independent ‘t’ test in order to compare the sports motivation (Intrinsic motivation, Extrinsic motivation and Amotivation ) among contact and non-contact sports persons. Further, the level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence. The finding of the study reveals that there was no significant difference found in case of sports motivation among contact and non-contact sports persons, may be due to the reason that both type of sports persons undergone with the high training schedule, very high fitness level, more highly motivated to win the medals in competitions. They might have equal level of experience in terms of playing their respective sports, which must have been probable cause for the insignificant difference.
