The purpose of this study was to see if the Play With Purpose program will provide the 00-01 Lynn University women's basketball team with necessary tools to increase personal growth, and aide in developing a healthy self-esteem.
To research this subject matter a survey was conducted. The survey was administered to the 2000-2001 Lynn University's Women's Basketball team. Based on race, religion, and socio-economic background it was felt that the team represented a wide spectrum of collegiate athletes.
While researching past studies, reviewing related literature, and calculating the survey, it was found by this study that the group size, although diverse, was insufficient. Results also revealed short- term affects of the treatment to be less effective.
