dc.description.abstractThis study aimed to explore the effects of adolescent participation in sport on five psychological variables; self-esteem, satisfaction with life, pro-social, victim and bully score. A correlational design was used to deliver a cross-sectional survey to measure sports participation, gender, school type and the five psychological variables. A total of 127 4th year students from three schools participated in the study. The surveys used were the Rosenberg self-esteem scale, the Satisfaction with life scale-child and the Bullying prevalence questionnaire. The results indicated a positive significant relationship between sports participation and school type. A significant difference between sports and non-sports participation on both self-esteem and satisfaction with life was also found. Results indicate that participating in sports has some positive effects. Author keywords: Physical education and training participation, self-esteem, satisfaction with life, pro-social victim bullyen
