KSR 744 - Psychological Dimensions of Performance in Sport

3 units (fi 6)(EITHER, 0-3S-0)

Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation

This course offers a theoretical and empirical analysis of various psychological constructs that underlie athlete performance and experience in competitive sport. This course examines the theoretical underpinnings of psychological (e.g., confidence, motivation), emotional (e.g., anxiety, anger), cultural (e.g., norms, roles), and personality characteristics (e.g., perfectionism, grit) that can play a role in the competitive sport experience for athletes. Students are exposed to key psychological constructs relevant to competitive sport settings and effective coaching in order to account for participation and performance in sport as a deeply holistic process.
