Confirmatory factor analyses partially supported the factorial validity and invariance. <br /><br />Conclusions<br />The German version of the Physical Activity Enjoyment Scale is sufficiently reliable and valid to be used for German-speaking children and adolescents. Further research examining the invariance over a longer period is warranted. Jekauc, Darko
