dc.description.abstractThis study examined sport-type effects on the different sources of sportconfidence in order to attempt to direct applied practice for developing confidence within athletes. A sample of male (N=26) and female (N=30) athletes, aged between 19 and 25 (M=20+/-0.9 years), from either a team sport (N=32) or an individual sport (N=24) completed the Sources of Sport Confidence Questionnaire (SSCQ) (Vealey et al., 1998). Athletes were asked to refer to their general level of confidence when completing the SSCQ. A one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was conducted which revealed no significant differences between sport-type scores. These findings highlight that differences do not exist between athletes competing in different types of sport, which suggests that interventions or strategies designed to enhance levels of confidence in athletes does not have to be altered when concerning sport-type, and should be as effective with both individual and team-sport athletes. Therefore, practitioners do not need to change their interventions when dealing with athletes from different sport-types.en_US
