The general objectives of the present article are to provide an overview of the group dynamics phenomenon known as "cohesion" and convey useful information to practitioners with regard to its conceptualization, measurement, and development. Within these broad areas, a focus is placed on recent advances in our understanding of cohesion in sport by discussing (a) age related developmental differences in group perceptions, (b) new alternatives in the measurement of cohesion, and (c) suggestions for developing and improving cohesion.
