Gurmeet Singh and Anisha Negi


Background: The educational experience that young athletes get from playing sports is significantly impacted by the involvement of their parents. They are the ones who are accountable for exposing their children to a physical or sports education, and it has been shown that parental involvement is connected to early sport participation. The purpose of the present research was to investigate the relationship between parental involvement with their children's commitment in sports participation.
Methods: The sample consisted of 200 children (aged 11 to 18) accompanied by their parents. It is made up of fifty each children and fifty each parents who played tennis, soccer, table tennis, and shooting. The participants were chosen using a random sampling technique. Furthermore, there were an equal number of male and female volunteers (n=50 each).
Results: The current study's findings demonstrated that there were significant relationships between parental involvements with their children's sport commitment in sports practice.
Conclusion: The research reveals that in order to motivate and increase children's commitment in sporting practice, it is necessary to promote parents' directive behaviors in their children's sports practice, as well as to lower the parent's pressure, thereby decreasing the children's competitiveness and emphasis on victory.
