The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between sources of sport confidence and re-injury anxiety. Currently injured athletes (N=30) completed the Modified Sources of Sport Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar and Duda, 2000) and Re-Injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker, Thatcher and Lavallee 2010). A multiple regression analysis was conducted to determine the relationship between the sources of sport confidence and re-injury anxiety, during both rehabilitation and re-entry into competition phases. The results of the multiple regression analysis indicated a significant relationship between both demonstration of ability (p<0.05) and mastery (p<0.05) sources and re-injury anxiety during the re-entry into competition phase. No significant relationship was found between any of the sources and re-injury anxiety during the rehabilitation phase. These findings suggest that only demonstration of ability and mastery sources of confidence effect levels of re-injury anxiety in athletes.
