Differences between students who are not engaged in and who practice organized sports are determined by multivariate and univariate analysis of variance (MANOVA and ANOVA).Girls of high school age who are included in organized sports practicing show higher values ??in most of the variables that estimated the degree of autonomous motivation towards physical-sport activity.
