Abstract

Verónica Tutte, Tomás Blasco y Jaume Cruz

The present study aimed to acquire knowledge regarding levels of Motivational Climate and Orientation, Sports Commitment, Perception of Control and Burnout in young football players, and to analyze the differences between diverse categories. The Perceived Motivational Climate Questionnaire (PMCSQ-2), Perception of Success Questionnaire (POSQ), the Sports Commitment Questionnaire (SCQ), and a set of items to assess the perception of control were administered to 98 masculine football players a club associated to the Uruguayan Football League. Burnout was evaluated through the Sportsmen Burnout Inventory (IBD). Results showed that 75 % of the players evaluated scored somewhat ambiguously in the IBD, yet being the dimension of Emotional Depletion the one in which they scored the highest. The youngest football players showed a higher perception of control of an overcoming difficulty, as well as in some dimensions of the Sports Commitment. No differences were found between categories in the dimensions of Motivational Climate and Motivational Orientation. We may therefore conclude that the youngest player’s profile differs from the remaining categories.
