Abstract:

The study was designed to determine the influence of fitness-oriented, physical activity on the physical self-perception and global self-worth of children. The 'perceived athletic competence', 'physical appearance', and 'global self-worth' subscales from the Self-Perception Profile for Children (Harter, 1985) and the Perceived Physical Competence Scale for Children (Lintunen, 1987) were administered to 76 children, aged 9 to 11 years, at the beginning and end of a 1-month fitness program. During the month, the experimental group (n = 40) participated in the 3-day-per-week fitness program; the control group (n = 36) did not. A 2 x 2 factorial MANCOVA was utilized and a significant (p <.10) gender effect was affected by differences in perceived athletic competence, with the experimental group scoring higher at the end of the 1-month period. From a discriminant function analysis, the boys from both groups were found to have significantly higher 'perceived athletic competence' (p <.001) scores in comparison to the girls. Further research and inventory development is necessary in order to better understand the physical self-perceptions of children.
