Abstract

This study investigated the perceived role of mental skills training in injury rehabilitation among Atlantic University Sport (AUS) athletes. The Trew Mental Skills Training and Injury Rehabilitation Questionnaire was developed by the investigator. The questionnaire, letters of introduction and self-addressed stamped envelopes were distributed to the coaches of AUS teams who were actively competitive at the time of this study. A total of two hundred and ninety questionnaires were completed and returned. The findings indicated that of the 78.3% of athletes who reported sustaining an injury, only 21% of these athletes used mental skills training as part of their injury rehabilitation programs. AUS athletes (62%) also indicated that they would be willing to use mental skills training in future injury rehabilitation programs. This study concluded that although many AUS athletes use mental skills training to enhance performance, they are not being provided with many opportunities to implement mental skills training into injury rehabilitation programs.
