Competitive Stress in Athletes: Determinants and Impact on Performance.
The purpose of this bibliography is to give coaches a better understanding of what determines competitive stress in athletes and of how this anxiety relates to performance. Research and studies pertaining to factors related to pregame and postgame competitive stress were investigated as well as the validity and reliability of tests used to measure competitive stress in athletes. The annotations are divided into three categories: (1) factors or sources that determine pregame and postgame competitive stress in athletes; (2) the effect of stress on an athletic performance; and (3) the validity of tests used to measure competitive anxiety.
