Abstract: The present secondary research review was undertaken with four primary purposes: (a) to determine the “state of the art” of sport motivation research; (b) to consolidate and synthesize the available information regarding sport motivation; (c) to identify strengths and weaknesses in the empirical support for practices in sport motivation; and Ca1 to propose future directions for research and practices in sport motivation. A total of 60 reports published in professional periodicals between 1975 and 1986 were included in the study. Data were collected on the theoretical influences, variables, research strategies, subjects and principal investigators of each study.
