The purpose of this study was to examine participants’ perceptions of their return to sport experience and its affect after the initial return to sport. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten participants who experienced a serious injury. Content analysis of the data highlighted the need for psychological support and interventions to facilitate the initial return to sport, the importance of confidence restoration, specifically, confidence in the injured body part, and confidence in being in the same situation in which the injury occurred. The findings have implications for coaches and sports medicine personnel involved with injured athletes.
