dc.description.abstractPrevious research has identified that jock culture is a term naturally related to the male sex, creating the opportunity to look beyond. The study investigated whether jock culture existed within female team sport. Reasoning behind this chosen study was to examine whether characteristics and behaviours often adopted within male team sport were then infiltrated into female cultures. It appeared that there was a gender order in place due to the gap identified within the research. The study examined the social culture of Brooklands women’s hockey club through the use of focus group interviews gathering a detailed insight into their culture. Findings suggested that female sports teams do incorporate aspects of jock culture to some extent through the key themes outlined; the hierarchy structures in place, identity construction, habitus, excessive alcohol consumption, expectations and punishments. Although it was prevalent that jock culture was only established within female cultures in specific environments.en_US
