Abstract:Little is known about how morality is reflected from sports toward the household context. This study aims to investigate how morality as in prosocial and antisocial behaviours of athletes in contact team sports is reflected into the household context and the role of Gender. 17 Dutch university students between 18-27 years old completed two questionnaires assessing prosocial and antisocial behaviour in sports and in the household context, The newly developed measure, Prosocial and Antisocial Behaviour in Household Scale, PABHS, shows excellent reliability results. Pearson’s correlation was applied between the continuous variables of the study and showed almost no significant predictors of the prosocial behaviour household (P-h) neither of antisocial behaviour (A-h). In line with the literature, mean scores of frequency in P-h are significantly smaller than for prosocial behaviour teammates (PT-s). No moderating or mediating role for Gender has been found. The new measure PABHS shows to be a reliable tool for futher research aimed at development of targeted interventions and programs aimed at promoting moral development within both sports and family contexts.
