dc.description.abstractThe focus of this study was to examine the predictive ability of sources of sports confidence on the intensity and frequency of re-injury anxiety in rehabilitation and upon the return to sport. Injured athletes or those who had recently return to competitive sport after injury (n = 50) completed the Modified Sources of Sport-Confidence Questionnaire (MSSCQ; Magyar & Duda, 2000) and the Re-Injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker, Thatcher & Lavellee, 2010). A multiple regression analysis was conducted to investigate if any sources of confidence significantly predicted re-injury anxiety (Rehabilitation: intensity and frequency; Re-entry: intensity and frequency). The results showed a significant relationship between rehabilitation intensity and physical self-presentation (P < .001), vicarious experience (P < .001), mastery (P < .001) and mental/physical preparation (P < .05). Rehabilitation frequency had significant relationships with physical self-presentation (P < .01), vicarious experience (P < .01), mental/physical preparation (P < .05) and mastery (P < .05). Additionally, relationships were found during the re-entry phase in relation to intensity: mastery (P < .001), vicarious experience (P < .01), physical self-presentation (P < .05) and mental/physical preparation (P < .05); and frequency: mastery (P < .001), vicarious experience (P < .01) and mental/physical preparation (P < .05). Mastery and vicarious experience was found to lessen re-injury anxiety levels in all subscales whereas self-presentation and mental/physical preparation were found to heighten levels of reinjury anxiety within their significant subscales. Further quantitative and qualitative research is required to explain the ability of particular sources of confidence to predict reinjury anxiety.en_US
