RELATIONS OF SPORT MOTIVATION ORIENTATION AND COHESION IN YOUNG MALE AND FEMALE VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS

Zoran Grgantov, Boris Milavić, Damir Jurko

One hundred and eighteen young volleyball players from Bosnia and Herzegovina filled out the group cohesion questionnaire – GEQ (Carron, Widmeyer and Brawley, 1985) and motivational orientation questionnaire – TEOSQ (Chi and Duda, 1995), with the aim of determining the relation of motivational orientation and group cohesion. The average age of female volleyball players was 16,22 + 1,73 years, and in male volleyball players 17,09 + 1,42 years. The analysis of descriptive indicators of the variables showed that young male and female volleyball players were dominantly task oriented, and that their ego orientation was much less pronounced. The inspection of the individual components of fellowship showed higher values of variables estimating individual tendency of an individual to group activities, in relation to the variables estimating the integrity of a group as a whole. T-test did not show any significant differences between genders in any of the analyzed components of motivational orientation and fellowship. The correlation analysis showed low positive relations of task orientation and the 4 fellowship components, as well as low negative relations of ego orientation and fellowship.
