Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to research the relationship between college athlete's moral selfconcept and sport-related moral development. The method of stratified quota sampling was adopted in this study, in which the group studied was college athletes in the departments of physical education of national universities in Taiwan. In addition, we analyzed our data by descriptive statistics, test of homogeneity and discriminant analysis. The results of the study showed that gender and types of competition do not cause any significant disparity in the perception of moral self-concept and sport-related moral development. In order to promote the athletes' moral selfconcept and enhance the development of sport-related morality, the cognitive development of the athletes' moral self-concept and sport-related moral development could adopt character education, situated teaching, as well as positive reinforcements and feedbacks.
