Abstract

Examining the Relationship Between Sport Anxiety and Coping Behaviors

Cassie Vergara: University of La Verne, La Verne, CA

Context: Athletic trainers should be able to understand the needs of their patients if they are to provide the best treatment and support needed for successful performance outcomes. Encouraging healthier coping behaviors for a nervous athlete would not just help them perform well one day, but improve health in the long run.

Objective: To examine the correlation between sport anxiety and coping behaviors in college athletes.

Setting: Division III university

Data Collection: Surveys were distributed to all University of La Verne athletes by faculty mentor, Dr. Megan Granquist. Data was collected online and stored into SPSS.

Participants: All participants are college athletes who are organized through SPSS by age, gender, race and ethnicity, year, sport, and injury history. They have a right to remove themselves from the study at any time they feel the need to do so according to IRB standards.

Variables: The independent variable of this study is sport anxiety, which will be measured by the Sport Anxiety Scale-2 (SAS-2).This scale assesses for three factors: somatic anxiety, worry, and concentration disruption (Smith, Smoll, Cumming, & Grossbard, 2006). Coping behaviors, which is the dependent variable, will be accounted for by the Brief COPE. The Brief COPE lists 28 items with 14 subscales of coping behaviors total (Carver, 1997)

Results: In progress

Conclusion:

Summary of research results to be presented

This research study is still in progress, therefore, results are yet to be determined. Results will be collected and examined by the presentation date in November, completing this research project.
