dc.description.abstractThe aim of the current study was to explore the effects of sources of sport-confidence on the prediction of re-injury anxiety in injured athletes. Participants (n = 39) consisted of athletes from various different sporting backgrounds who had sustained a sporting injury within the last six months with at least two weeks’ rehabilitation. This lead them to complete the Modified Sources of Sport Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar & Duda, 2000) and the Re-Injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker, Thatcher & Lavellee, 2010). A simple multiple regression analysis was carried out to explore whether the predictor variable (sources of confidence) had any significant relationship with the outcome variable (re-injury anxiety intensity and frequency) in the rehabilitation and re-entry to competition phases. The results of the multiple regression analysis showed insignificance (p > .05) between all nine sources of confidence and re-injury anxiety. These findings question the ability of sources of sport confidence to predict re-injury anxiety. However, previous research somewhat supports the findings. Future research involving qualitative and quantitative data collection should be carried out to further explore the findings and investigate any other potential predictors of re-injury anxiety.en_US
