dc.description.abstractThe purpose of the present study was to develop an inventory designed to measure cohesion in children's (ages 9–12) sport teams. In order to carry out this task, a three-phase research program was undertaken. Phase 1 involved the use of focus groups with 35 (nmales = 14, nfemales = 21) children, open-ended questionnaires with 132 (nmales = 63, nfemales = 69) children, and a literature review in order to better understand children's perceptions of the concept of cohesion. Phase 2 involved using information gathered from Phase 1 in order to develop potential items and determine their content validity. In Phase 3, factorial validity was established using confirmatory factor analyses with an independent heterogeneous sample (n = 298) of child sport participants. The result is the final version of the Child Sport Cohesion Questionnaire (CSCQ) containing 16 items that assess both task and social cohesion.
