The purpose of this study was to develop a scale to measure leisure facilitators and report its initial psychometric evidence. Moderate correlations were observed for the association of leisure motivation with leisure facilitators. Leisure facilitators were also significantly correlated with leisure constraints. The t-tests investigating the standardized path coefficients were significant, suggesting that all paths were assisting in the prediction of their assigned factors. These results provide supporting evidence for the convergent validity of the indicators. Model-fit statistics demonstrate that 27 items of the leisure facilitators in the proposed model fit the data well. The findings from this study may be relevant to considering whether the proposed model is appropriate to measure a scale of leisure facilitators. Future study needs to verify the characterization of the leisure facilitator scale. The scale should be examined by other sufficient samples such as adolescents, older adults and local community residents. Further investigation is required to test the stability of the leisure facilitator scale.
