The objective of this research is to study the factors that motivate young basketball players from Aso Modèle and Elan sportif. For this purpose, a mixed survey was conducted among 31 subjects, including 27 young basketball players and 4 coaches, to study the factors that motivate young people to play basketball in both clubs and to analyze the motivation of young people in both clubs; to this end, the theory of self-determination of Déci and Ryan (2002) was used. Thus, we were able to show that the age of the respondents is between 14 and 20 years old (18.00 ± 1.76); results have been obtained that reveal that Aso Modèle players are more intrinsically motivated to achieve while Elan players are more interested in maintaining good relationships with friends (extrinsic motivation with external regulation); and that the motivation of young basketball players varies from one club to another. It was suggested that coaches should take into account the motivation of young people in order to find ways and methods to increase it; in this way, these young people will not only produce better performance but will also be loyal to the club.
