Previous research linking trust, motivation, and organizational commitment in the realm of business has increased understanding about how these constructs interact and increase profits (Sharfman, Shaft & Anex, 2007). The proposed study seeks to examine whether similar associations will translate to a sports field. Furthermore, this study seeks to examine differences between individual oriented sports teams and how they might differ in culture dynamics compared to team oriented sports. For this study there are two different hypotheses. The first hypothesis is that type of sport (individual or team) is expected to moderate the relationship between team trust and motivation, with team sports strengthening the relationship between the two variables whereas individual sports weaken the relationship. The second hypothesis is type of team is expected to moderate the relationship between team trust and organizational commitment, with team sports strengthening the relationship between the two variables whereas individual sports weaken the relationship.
