Peer Victimisation in UK University Team Sport

01 January 1970

Sport and physical activity can help to develop positive peer relationships, which in turn assists in the development of identity and social ability (Perron et al. 2012; MacPherson, Kerr & Stirling, 2016). On the other hand, negative peer relationships have the opposite effect on development and sustained engagement in sport (MacPherson, Kerr & Stirling, 2016). The aim of this proposed study is to understand the relationship between peer victimisation and engagement in university sport.
