Abstract [en]

Lately both scientists and news reports have indicated increased concerns that parent-spectator behavior at youth sport events may be problematic. The overall purpose of this study was therefore to examine what behaviors adult spectators show during 10-12 years old girls participation within the sports football and equestrian. Data for the study was assembled by the writers in form of on site, non-participating observations. A total of four observations took place, two within each sport, during which the adult spectators behaviors was noted and studied in relations to norms and environmental effects. Results indicate that regardless of the different characters of the sports there are no significant differences in shown behavior. Most adult spectators exhibit behaviors which in relation to the study's theory is to be considered appropriate for the girl’s sport participation. Some exceptions were observed, adult spectators that exhibited behaviors less appropriate for the girl’s sport environment, but the amount in which these behaviors were shown is not on its own enough to be considered alarming.Lately both scientists and news reports have indicated increased concerns that parent-spectator behavior at youth sport events may be problematic.
