Quick Reference

The hypothesis that youths of particular minority or ethnic groups take up specific roles and positions in sports teams because they wish to copy highly successful players from the same group. For example, it is argued that many black youths in North America tend to compete in non-central positions in sports teams because they are trying to emulate black elite athletes who they previously saw performing successfully in those positions.
