The key idea of this study is to investigate the relationship between self-discipline, coach’s behaviors and teammate’s factors and aggressiveness of youth football team players. This research is a quantitative study using an experimental case study (one-shot case study) method. A total of 30 youth football players from Perlis and Kedah under 18 football team were recruited using purposive sampling, were involved in this study. Researchers used a questionnaire which consists five scale Likert point and data were analyzed using a Pearson’s correlation coefficient (r) statistical analysis to identify the correlation between self-disciplines, coaches behaviors and teammates factors towards aggressiveness of these youth football team players by using SPSS version 20. The statistic has shown that youth football team player’s self-discipline and coaches behaviors are not the main causes of aggressiveness. Yet teammates, in Perlis and Kedah youth football team, is a leading cause or the main contributing factors of aggressiveness among footballers under the age of 18. Further work is necessary on these issues of aggressiveness.
