Burnout is explained within the context of sport commitment. Burnout occurs when athletes become entrapped in sport and feel they must play even though they lose motivation for participation (feel trapped) More likely for kids whose parents chose what sport they play and how often. Some kids feel like they have to play for other reasons (ex. social reasons) Ex. at the age of 16 you don"t want to play anymore but you have no other skills so they can"t do anything else. Usually can get out of the sport after high school when you have to choose between a scholarship or not. People have three basic psychological needs: autonomy, competence, and relatedness. Those who do not have these basic needs met will be more prone to burnout. Consistent pattern of low self-determination leads to burnout.
