Abstract

This investigation compared the priority given to 14 sport-related values by 11 wrestlers with normal sight and 11 with visual impairments. The Survey of Values in Sport was given to 22 high school wrestlers during the competitive season. Independent t tests were used to evaluate differences in priority of values between the two groups. Significant differences were found on cooperation, group coordination, being a good sport, and being in a good place, which wrestlers with visual impairments valued higher in priority than the wrestlers with normal sight.
