Preliminary Evidence for a Relationship between Mental Toughness and Quality of Life for NCAA Division-I Student-Athletes (pp. 173-184) $100.00
Authors:  (Susannah Knust, Kevin LaGuerre, Craig Wrisberg, Cortney King, and Nathan Berggrun)
Abstract:
The aim of the present study was to extend previous research on the concept of
mental toughness (MT) by examining the possible relationship between MT and quality
of life (QOL) among NCAA D-I student-athletes. A total of 169 respondents (105
females, 64 males) completed an online instrument consisting of the Mental, Emotional,
and Bodily Toughness Inventory (MeBTough) (Mack & Ragan, 2008) and the Athlete
Life Quality Scale (ALQS) (Gentner, Wrisberg, & Lounsbury, 2011). The results
indicated a significant (p < .01) positive relationship between MeBTough and ALQS
scores suggesting that MT may be a factor that contributes to athletes‘ lives in ways that
extend beyond that of improved sport performance. Further research is recommended to
determine whether a positive MT-QOL relationship exists for athletes participating at
other levels of competition and whether sport psychology interventions designed to
improve MT might also impact QOL.
