The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of Sport Education on the constructs that
facilitate amotivation. A total of 78 amotivated secondary students were engaged in a 15-lesson
unit of badminton taught using the Sport Education or skill-drill-game approach. Constructs that
facilitate amotivation were assessed using the Amotivation Inventory in Physical Education survey
using a pre-test and post-test design. Data were analysed using linear mixed modelling. Results
indicated that Sport Education brought about a significant change for half of the pre-cursors of low
levels of motivation. These findings indicate support for the notion that Sport Education can
facilitate positive change for students with low levels of motivation.
