Teachers’ interpersonal style can influence motivation for physical education classes. The aims of this study were to validate for the South Brazilian context a version of a measuring instrument to evaluate teacher's interpersonal style in physical education, and an instrument to measure amotivation in physical education, as well as to prove the relation between the demotivation in the classes of physical education and the teachers’ interpersonal style. The questionnaires were applied in a sample of 429 students aged 10 to 14 years. The results indicate these are three valid and reliable instruments to evaluate the interpersonal style of teacher‘s physical education, and the amotivation in physical education classes. The teacher‐controller style positively predicts amotivation.
