The purpose of this study was to determine the motivational factors of Division III athletes. The goal was help determine whether Division III athletes were intrinsically or extrinsically motivated. The study involved a questionnaire, which was given to the participants that measure their intrinsic and extrinsic motivational scores. This study provided significant results for extrinsic motivated athletes. Research in this area should continue, as there is very little information available, especially amongst Division III athletics.
