Studies exploring the socialisation effects of sports activities on facets of personality (e. g., self-concept) have generally concentrated on the analysis of isolated effects of sports so far, without taking proper account of other developmental contexts (e. g., family). Since this is considered to be a key explanation for the unsatisfactory results to date, our paper attempts to establish the role of sports for the self-concept within the complex network of different developmental contexts. One hundred and twenty one adolescents were investigated in a person-oriented longitudinal study, and data was analysed with the LICUR method (e. g., Bergman, Magnusson, & El-Khouri, 2003). The sub-groups identified differed significantly in all facets of self-concept investigated, displaying a profile of scores for their developmental factors that were both stable over time and dynamics, and followed specific developmental paths at an above-random frequency. These findings are used to formulate recommendations for a holistic and functional promotion of a positive self-concept through sports.
