Abstract

Discusses ways in which sport and exercise psychology might more systematically begin to incorporate factors of race and ethnicity into its research agendas. Evidence of a dearth of such research in the field of sport and exercise psychology is presented. An overview of current work highlights ethnic/racial differences in motor performance, physical activity levels, and recreational sport participation. The theoretical relevance of comparative research on ethnic/racial similarities and differences in psychological processes and behavior is explored. Potential research methodologies for psychological research in sport and exercise contexts are presented.
