The authors adopted the 2 × 2 model of perfectionism to examine the unique and interactive effects of two dimensions of perfectionism (personal standards perfectionism PSP and evaluative concerns perfectionism ECP) on personal and interpersonal indicators of participant experience in youth sport (enjoyment, physical self‐worth, and friendship quality). Participants (N = 219, M age = 15.12, SD = 2.02) were recruited from various school‐ and community‐based sports and completed a multi‐section questionnaire. Consideration of main and interaction effects indicated that pure PSP (high PSP/low ECP) was associated with the most positive sport experience and pure ECP (low PSP/high ECP) was associated with the least positive sport experience. The findings suggest that subtypes of perfectionism from the 2 × 2 model are predictive of differing experiences in youth sport participation.
