SOUSA, Paulo Malico; ROSADO, António  and  CABRITA, Túlia. O escalão etário e o tempo de prática da modalidade como determinantes das atribuições causais no desporto: Um estudo efectuado no futebol . Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.1, pp.147-159. ISSN 0870-8231.

Analyzing a sample of 192 football players, this study intend to evaluate the influence of the independent variables, ages groups (juniors/seniors) and associated practice time (≤ 5 years; 6 to 10 years; ≥ 11 years), in the causal attributions made by the athletes to explain them best sport results of ever. Based in the Weiner’s Attributional model (1979, 1986), who explains the causal perceptions throughout the dimensions of locus of causality, stability and controllability. We find results that allow to evidence that, different players from different ages with different practice time, don’t have similarity in the form that they percept them sports results, independent being successful or failure sport situations.

Keywords : Causal attributions; sport success and failure; Weiners attributional model.
