The main aim of the research was to examine the relationship between motivational orientations and parents
behaviour with regard to the players’ motivational orientation, motivational climate, enjoyment and amotivation.
Results showed a positive relationship between parents’ support of the sport and players’
enjoyment and a negative relationship with players’ amotivation. Moreover, in players who perceived more pressure
from their parents, there was a positive association with amotivation and a negative one with enjoyment.
