The question is How do NCAA Division III female college athletes describe their motivation to participate in athletics? This study documents the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation of Division III female athletes. It differentiates self-motivation of team sport athletes compared to individual sport athletes. The author uses research literature to focus on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation as well as coaching factors. Then the author uses a validated Self-Motivation Inventory (SMI) and interviews to describe the motivation of current Division III female athletes. Motivation is described as intrinsic, with extrinsic factors weighing on it.
