KREBS, Ruy J.; COPETTI, Fernando; SERPA, Sidónio y ARAUJO, Duarte. Personal dispositions of young tennis players: a study supported by the Bronfenbrenners bioecological theory. Rev. bras. psicol. esporte [online]. 2008, vol.2, n.2, pp. 1-24. ISSN 1981-9145.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the young tennis players' personal dispositions with support on the of Bronfenbrenners Bioecological Theory. The data collected by Copetti (2001) for his doctoral dissertation were used for a metanalysis. They were identified four categories of analysis: disposition for engagement, disposition for permanence, disposition for the abandonment and disposition for reorganizing actions. The results emphasized the need to use the interaction factors suggested in the bioecological model and it was concluded that any evaluation of young tennis players' personal attributes will depend on the continuity and discontinuity of their personal dispositions, as well as of the interaction of the other factors that composes Bioecological Theorys model.
