Abstract:
The objective of the present study was assessment of sportsperson spirit in intercollegiate athletes in relation to their tribal-non tribal belongingness and gender. To conduct the study 30 tribal intercollegiate male athletes, 30 intercollegiate female athletes, 30 non tribal intercollegiate female athletes and 30 non tribal intercollegiate female athletes were selected. The age of selected subjects was between 19 to 25 years. Dubey (1988) Sportsman Spirit Questionnaire was used to assess sportsman spirit in selected subjects. To analyse the data, 2x2 factorial design was employed. Results reveal significant main effect of tribal-non-tribal belongingness on sportsman spirit of intercollegiate athletes. Similarly the significant main effect of gender was also observed on sportsman spirit of intercollegiate ahletes. The two factor interaction effect of tribal-non tribal belongingness was not found to create significant variance on sportsman spirit. It was concluded that tribal-non-tribal belongingness and gender alone but not jointly affect sportsman spirit of intercollegiate athletes.
