Comparative analysis of development of motivation in russian and chinese student basketball players

Currently, student sports mobility is increasingly characterized by international-ization. Russian and Chinese colleges have been engaged in cooperation in student sports via, most importantly, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Network University. Objective of the study was to make a comparative analysis of the development of motivation in players on Russian and Chinese student basketball teams from the moment they start playing basketball (at preschool and school age) to the moment they enter university. Methods and structure of the study. The authors conducted a survey of 48 basketball players from four men’s university basketball teams. The survey was carried out during an international student basketball tournament held in Harbin, China, in June of 2019 to mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and China. The authors employed a set of traditional methods of research, including statistical and comparative analysis, generalization, and juxtaposition, and methods of sociological enquiry. The age of the respondents ranged from 19 to 25 years old, with their experience doing basketball ranging from 14 to 16 years and their qualifications ranging from Class 2 to Candidate Master of Sport. Each team comprised 12 players. All of the players took part in the survey. Results and conclusion. The authors’ analysis of the development of motivation in the student basketball players surveyed from the moment started doing basketball to the moment they entered university helped bring forward a set of uniform approaches to fostering motivation in both Russian and Chinese students, as well as identify a set of distinct national and regional characteristics. © 2021, Teoriya i praktika fizicheskoy kul'tury i sporta.
