Abstract

Background. Success and obtaining the highest results are one of the most important phenomena in modern society. Self-eff ectiveness directly infl uences the indicators that are the most topical in the context of maximal achievement, namely in professional sport. Scientists have earlier found positive correlation between physical activity and self-effi - cacy. However, the question on the place of athletic identity in connection between physical activity and self-effi cacy remains unsolved.

Objective. Th e study of correlation between physical activity, athletic identity and self-effi cacy.

Design. 200 participants with diff erent levels of involvement into physical activity and sport took part in our study. In ourstudy B.W. Brewer’s “Athletic identity measurement scale” and R. Schwarzer and M. Jerusalem’s “General self-effi cacy scale” were used.

Results. We statistically proved that there is positive correlation between physical activity level, athletic identity and self-effi cacy.

Conclusion. Athletic identity is a predictor of self-effi cacy among people who are involved in sport and physical activity and the higher is the level of athletic identity the higher is self-effi cacy. Correlation of these phenomena among people who are uninvolved into physical activity is not found.
