The aim of this study was to examine the predictive ability of the 9 sources of sports confidence on the intensity and frequency of re-injury anxiety during rehabilitation and return to sport. Participants (n = 41) who were all currently injured or had sustained an injury in the past 6 months completed the Modified Sources of Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar and Duda, 2000) and Re-injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker et al., 2010). Multiple regression was conducted to explore whether any of the sources of confidence predicted re-injury anxiety intensity or frequency at the rehabilitation and return to sport phases of injury. The results showed non-significance between all sources of confidence and re-injury anxiety; however two sources of confidence in the subscale indicate an individual significance but expressed in an overall non-significant model. These findings question the overall importance of the sources of confidence on re-injury anxiety.
