Abstract: "The purpose of this study was to determine the nature of the relationships among role ambiguity, role acceptance, role satisfaction, team cohesion, and athlete satisfaction. It was hypothesized that role ambiguity would predict both role acceptance and role satisfaction, and role acceptance and role satisfaction would predict both team cohesion and athlete satisfaction. Participants included 180 female soccer players from Division I, II, and III schools. Measures included the Role Perception Scale, a Role Acceptance and Role Satisfaction measure, the Group Environment Questionnaire, and the Athlete Satisfaction Questionnaire. Stepwise MR analysis showed that role ambiguity regarding role evaluation was predictive of role satisfaction, and role ambiguity regarding scope of responsibilities was predictive of role acceptance. Stepwise MR also showed role satisfaction to be the only predictor of athlete satisfaction with regard to leadership as well as the only predictor of team cohesion with regard to individual attractions to the group-task."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
