It was the purpose of this research to review the literature concerning the attitudes toward competitive athletics in our secondary schools. Educators have long recognized the need for a better administrative program of competitive athletics in the secondary education system. The questions that confront them are: Do competitive athletics have a place in our secondary school program? Do they offer the opportunity for high school youth to work toward or obtain worthwhile individual or cultural goals? In this paper the writer will attempt to find answers to these questions.
