What Motivates Senior Athletes to Compete?

Competing in sport involves motivation and includes satisfying an individual's desires or needs. In this session, Dr. Shawver will discuss what motivates seniors and some take-aways for your own events. In August 2015, she conducted a study to collect demographic information and identify motivating factors affecting senior adults competing in the 2015 National Senior Games Association state games.
