Title: Social identity, temporal scarcity, and projected selves : a study of NCAA athletic participation and its relation to health and well-being
Author: Rogers, Sarah Lynn
Abstract: An organizational communication study of collegiate athletes concludes that social identity theory, time scarcity, and projected selves theory are correlated with psychological/physical health, as well as the ability to predict academic success. Findings indicate that striking a balance between athletics and academics, and the time devoted to both, is necessary in order to achieve physical and psychological health. Furthermore, findings provide a link between the projected future self, social identity and the present motivation to achieve academically.
