The Interactions towards Moral Disengagement, Pro-social Behaviour and Anti-Social Behaviour among Students Athletes
The purpose of this study is to observe the interaction of moral resolution on prosocial and antisocial behaviour among university student-athletes. The interaction of these two elements may impact athletes' behaviour and performance in sports. The first step in building a successful and harmonious team must be athletic behaviour. This can be seen based on the athlete's age level in the environment of developing athletes. A questionnaire based on the Moral Disengagement Scale (MDSS-S) and Prosocial and Antisocial Behaviour in Sports Scale (PABSS) was completed by 140 athletes from team sports (Futsal, Basketball, Hockey, Handball, Frisbee, Soccer, and Volleyball). The findings show that (i.) there is no correlation between Morale Disengagement towards Prosocial Teammates and Prosocial of the Opposing Team, (ii) Student-athletes demonstrated a Morale Disengagement interaction with an antisocial teammate and an antisocial opponent. These findings could help coaches and athletes manage their self-reflection and moral judgement of their actions toward teammates and opponents. Values through sports should promote morale and self-discipline from the athlete's perspective because of the character and competitive behaviour in the sport.
