The effects of sports participation on high school student’s self-concept

Dr. Mange Ram
The Purpose of this study was to find out the if any differences existed in the self-concept of Students participating in Sports at the high schools of Sirsa District. The Self-Concept was measured by the Piers-Harris Children’s Self-Concept Scale. The result of the study showed that the children who participated in Sports scored significantly higher on the Self-Concept scale than the non-participating students. Both Girls and Boy’s outscored their counterparts on the Self-concept scale. The biggest difference in mean scores for boys was in the area of behavior, the biggest difference in the mean scores in girls was in happiness and satisfaction and intellectual status. The biggest difference between the Sports participating students and non-participating students was the total self-concept score. The results suggested that Sports should be included as essential part of the education by the Education Policy Makers. It is also recommended that the study should be expanded throughout more grade levels and other district schools before generalizations are made.
