Abstract

Socialization can take place through participation in sports since sports provide a microcosm for living and society. The structure of social relations in sports influences the participants’ development of social skills.

This paper reviews and extends research on aggression and sportsmanship, examines how aggression is developed, and makes recommendations.?
