LAMONEDA PRIETO, J.; HUERTAS DELGADO, F.J.; CORDOBA CARO, L.G.  and  GARCIA PRECIADO, A.V.. Adaptation of the Multidimensional Sportspersonship Orientation Scale in Juvenile Football. CPD [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.2, pp.71-80. ISSN 1989-5879.

The objective of this study is to contextualize the Multidimensional Sportspersonship Orientation Scale in juvenile football. This research included 160 football players from 10 to 12 years of age. The instrument initially indicated high internal consistency (α = 0.77), but did not show such high levels in the subdivision of the five sub-scales suggested by the original version (α <0.6). This finding led us to perform a dimensional reduction to two factors: personal and social. For that reason, a factor analysis was performed and supported with relevant specialized literature. The final version consists of 21 items divided into two sub-scales: statistical reliability (α> 0.6) and acceptable construct validity (KMO = 0.657, χ2=688.5, df 210, p <.000).
