The purpose of this exploratory study was to determine how boys who play travel hockey perceive their experiences influencing self-esteem. This study used three boy's adolescent aged minor hockey travel teams to identify experiences that influenced their levels of self-esteem. Primary sources included a review of relevant self-esteem literature, the responses to Harter's Self-Perception Profile for Children (SPPC), and interview responses from research participants. The SPPC and the interview process identified several areas where their experiences affected their self-esteem. Social acceptance, athletic competence, coaching, parents, and team try-outs were the significant factors identified by the travel hockey players as affected by their hockey experiences.
