Collegiate male athletes and nonathletes’ (N = 76) level of life satisfaction was assessed at termination of their collegiate careers, and further analyses indicated the degree of association between athletic injury history and life satisfaction after accounting for demographic and career-planning variables. While no significant Group or Group by Race interaction effects were found, life satisfaction was significantly lower among African American students. Regression analysis, controlling for demographic variables, further indicated that athletes who had sustained a severe athletic injury were no less satisfied with life than noninjured and moderately injured athletes. However, athletes who could state a postcollegiate occupational plan were significantly more satisfied with life than those who were unable to indicate such a goal. Results suggest that the role of athletic participation and athletic injury with respect to life satisfaction may have been overemphasized. The potential role of career planning in understanding termination from collegiate sport is discussed.

In Western Australia from 1984 to 1988, enrollment in Physical Education Studies by Year 12 girls decreased from 44% to 37%. The present study wanted to ascertain reasons why girls were disposed or not disposed toward selecting this subject. A questionnaire was administered to 103 girls taking Physical Education Studies and 103 girls not taking it in eight government secondary schools. Analyses revealed that girls taking Physical Education Studies liked physical activity, thought physical education classes were fun, appreciated the break from the classroom, felt it helped to keep them fit, enjoyed learning new skills, liked the sports offered, and perceived themselves as being good at physical education. The most important reasons given by girls for not selecting Physical Education Studies were that other subjects were more important to their career plans, that they could not fit it into their timetable, that they obtained enough exercise out of school, and that there was too much competitive activity.
