dc.description.abstractThis study identified the sources, types and debilitative factors of confidence significant to nine elite female football players. Eight types of confidence were recognised: Ability of team mates, psychological factors, own ability / performance, physical factors, superiority over opponents, achievement, tactical awareness, and athlete specific factors. A testament to the multi-dimensional nature of sport confidence, eleven sources of confidence emerged from the athletes’ responses: Coaching, performance, preparation, training, experience, previous performance accomplishments, feedback, vicarious learning, superiority over opponents, testing and athlete specific factors. This study also acknowledged factors that serve to debilitate confidence and agreed upon nine factors: Performance, team selection, injury, team mates, negative feedback, poor preparation, coach, opponents’ superiority and athlete specific factors. Findings were deliberated in the context of previous sport confidence research and practical implications for sport psychology were drawn.en_US
