ABSTRACT. The theory that I shall seek to elaborate here puts considerable emphasis on the socio-environmental predictors of athletic aggression in youth sport, the relationship between aggression and performance, the role that parents play in their children’s sports experiences, and the potential causes of aggressive behavior among hockey players. In this paper I am particularly interested in exploring spectators’ behavior at youth hockey games, coaches’ beliefs in their capabilities to influence the personal development and positive attitude of their athletes, aggressive behaviors as products of sport socialization, and the relationship between sport participation and aggression. pp. 183–188

Keywords: athletic aggression, hockey, sport participation, performance
