This study was carried out on 30 male national Swimmers of Panjab University Chandigarh (15 swimmers) and Kurukshetra University (15 swimmers) aged below Under-25. Sports motivation was measured by sports motivation scale (SMS-28) developed by Luc G. Pelletier et.al.in 1995 to compare the intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation and amotivation between the Swimmers of Panjab University, Chandigarh and Kurukshetra University. To analyze the results Descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation) and independent‘t’ test was employed. The findings of the study revealed that all intrinsic motivation variables (to know, accomplish & experience stimulation) have insignificant difference between Panjab University Chandigarh and Kurukshetra University Whereas results also revealed insignificant difference between Panjab University Chandigarh and Kurukshetra University swimmers for extrinsic motivation variables (identified, interjected) except external regulation for which significant difference was found.
