The aim of this study is to look at the relationship of team official's influence on players, sport played and impulsiveness of participants in relation to sporting behaviour. There were three hypotheses at work, which were based on these aims. The study was carried out on male, university level, contact sport players and the associated team officials. All participants filled out three questionnaires that were given out by hand, a general interest questionnaire, the Physical education and training Behaviour Inventory and the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale 11-A. No significant relationship was found for the three hypotheses. Although no significant result was found, the descriptive statistics give an interesting look at the scores accumulated and how they relate to previous research.
