Sažetak:
In early adolescence environmental factors play a significant role in psychological adjustment. Physical activity positively contributes to physical but also to mental health of adolescents. Gender differences in physical activity emerge prenatally and increase during childhood and adolescence ; boys are more active in all ages (Malina et. al, 2004). Administering the Croatian Version of Youth Self Report, YSR (Achenbach & Rescorla, 2001) on the sample of 230 athletes and 346 non-athletes (Mage=17.2, SD=1.13) we investigated psychological adjustment indicators with regard to gender. Boys reported higher rate of somatic complaints, internalizing problems, attention problems and more withdrawn signs ; girls reported significantly more anxiety/depression symptoms, somatic complaints and attention problems that led to higher level of internalizing problems, in comparison to boys who significantly more inclined to risky and rule breaking behaviour. With regard to sport involvement, higher rate of internalizing problems was found in adolescent boys, and frequency of symptoms decline with increment of physical activity. Inactive girls reported more attentional problems than active girls. There was a dose-response relationship wherein the positive benefits of exercise on mental health emerged only when exercise exceeded 4 hours per week. Regular physical activity and sport can play a protective role for psychological adjustment to different environmental, social and developmental demands during this vulnerable developmental stage, especially in girls, and might be beneficial for psychological well-being and their quality of life.
