I investigated the relationships between recreational sport involvement, work stress, leisure sport coping strategies, quality of life, and sport commitment in sport participants in central Taiwan. These variables were assessed in a structured questionnaire and LISREL path analysis was used to verify the proposed conceptual model. Results showed that regular participation in recreational sports may serve as a coping strategy and consequently reduce work stress. In addition, sport participation may facilitate continued sport participation owing to improvements in individuals’ quality of life.
