The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of sources of confidence on predicting re-injury anxiety intensity and frequency following athletic injury. The 54 participants (26 male, 28 female) had sustained athletic injury within the last five years, requiring a minimum of two weeks recovery/rehabilitation; completed the Modified Sources of Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar & Duda, 2000) and Re-injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker et al., 2010). A multiple regression analysis was conducted to investigate the relationships between the predictor variables (sources of confidence) and the outcome variables (re-injury anxiety intensity and frequency) in both the rehabilitation and return to competition phases. The results of multiple regression analysis revealed insignificance (p > .05) between all sources of confidence and re-injury anxiety. These findings question the influence of self-confidence on re-injury anxiety however; the findings were somewhat in line with previous research. Additional quantitative and qualitative research should be conducted to further reason the findings and explore potential alternative predictors of re-injury anxiety.
