t The purpose of this survey study was to replicate Deborah L. Borak’s doctoral dissertation, Measuring the Levels of Athletic Identity and Identity Foreclosure Among Student Athletes at a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) College. Using a diverse sample of student-athletes across six Division III (DIII) NJCAA colleges within the State University of New York (SUNY) system, 113 DIII student-athletes completed online surveys to measure their demographics (sports played, gender, ethnicity, years played), athletic identity, and identity foreclosure. Consistent with previous studies, the DIII junior college athletes in this study also reported high levels of athletic identity and identity foreclosure, and athletic identity was a significant positive predictor of identity foreclosure. Demographic differences in athletic identity and identity foreclosure were also found based on ethnicity and the sport played.
