dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present study was to identify if sources of confidence and levels of robust confidence could predict levels and frequencies of re-injury anxiety during rehabilitation and on the return to sport. Athletes who had previously sustained a sports-related injury (N=43) completed the Modified Sources of Sport Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar & Duda, 2000), the Trait Robustness of Sport Confidence Inventory (TROSCI; Beattie et al., 2010) and the Re-Injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker et al., 2010). A multiple regression analysis was conducted to identify which sources of confidence and if levels of robust confidence were predictors of re-injury anxiety, during both rehabilitation and re-entry into competition phases. This analysis gave a value as to the variances the M-SSCQ and TROSCI predicted the re-injury anxiety subscales; frequency rehabilitation, intensity rehabilitation, frequency re-entry and intensity re-entry. The results of the multiple regression analysis indicated there were no significant predictors of re-injury anxiety when sources of confidence were integrated with levels of robust confidence. These findings suggest that sources of confidence and levels of robust confidence don’t effect levels and frequencies of re-injury anxiety. Further research from both quantitative and qualitative approaches with a larger sample size is required to identify predictors of re-injury anxiety in both a rehabilitation and return to sport setting. This knowledge would assist coaches and rehabilitation practitioners to foster positive athlete appraisals and interventions to reduce re-injury anxiety.en_US
