It is fairly common for athletes to experience stress and anxiety, given a constant desire to perform well or compete at a high level.Additionally, psychological factors (e.g. psychological distress, self-efficacy, locus of control, athletic identity, and everyday anxiety and stress) can play an important role in performance, recovery from injury, and return to play. As part of the women’s sports medicine program, we want to educate athletes, parents, and coaches on these topics with the goal of improving overall outcome.
