The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between an athlete’s sources of sport-confidence and re-injury anxiety within the injury process. Injured athletes (N=40) completed the Modified Version of the Sources of Sport Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar & Duda, 2000) and the Re-Injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker, Thatcher & Lavallee, 2010). Multiple regression analysis was used to examine the relationships between the sources of sport-confidence and re-injury anxiety in the rehabilitation and re-entry phases (e.g., frequency and intensity subscales). The results of the multiple regression analysis showed no significant predictor variables to be found between the sources of sport confidence and re-injury anxiety during the rehabilitation and re-entry into sport phases. However, vicarious experience was the only predictor variable to display the highest variance (p<.04) that contributed to the prediction of re-injury anxiety during the rehabilitation frequency phase. These findings suggest that the sources of confidence are not significant predictors of re-injury anxiety within injury rehabilitation and re-entry into sport. Further quantitative and qualitative research is required to explain these findings, and may want to consider other psychological factors that may influence re-injury anxiety.
