dc.description.abstract The primary purpose of the current study was to determine whether values for psychological collectivism could predict enjoyment and intentions to return in individual youth sport athletes. In addition, structural interdependence and age were used as moderator variables for the proposed relationships. A total of 142 youth (Mage = 14.44 years; SD = 1.63) completed questionnaires at two data-collection periods (T1 – psychological collectivism, T2 – enjoyment, intentions to return). The results indicated that psychological collectivism positively predicted both enjoyment and intentions to return. Also, task interdependence significantly moderated the relationship between psychological collectivism and enjoyment (b = .14, t(137) = -1.90, p =.06) and intentions to return (b = -.17, t(137) = -2.07, p =.04). Results also revealed that age significantly moderated the relationship between psychological collectivism and intentions to return (b = .05, t(138) = 2.04, p = .04). These results will be discussed in terms of their theoretical and practical implications. en_US
