Based on the multidimensional model proposed by Marsh and Shavelson (1985), this study tries to verify in what manner different level of sport participation (people who never play sport; abandoned sport and still plays sport) are associated to different self-concept structures. Simultaneously, the study pretends to access how sport participation is related with different levels in the various domains of self-concept. The portuguese version of SDQ III (Faria & Fontaine, 1992) was administrated to 218 subjects (male and female), with ages between 17 and 35 years, non-praticants (n=69), past-praticants (n=72) and praticants (n=77) of different kind of sport. The differences between these groups in differents domains of self-concept were analyse, well as the differences between gender and age were explored. The results revealed that global self-concept was higher in sport participants and that men and women differ significantly in terms of Physical Appearance and Competence.

Keywords : Self-concept; sport participation; SDQ III.
