ABSTRACT
The purpose of the present study was to examine the sport confidence and self-efficacy beliefs in football players participating in either super league (N = 48) or second league (N = 53). Athletes completed the Trait Sport Confidence Inventory (TSCI), State Sport Confidence Invetory (SSCI), and Self-Efficacy Scale (SES). Pearson Moment Correlation results indicated a positive significant relationship between State Sport Confidence and Self-Efficacy levels (r = .492), Trait Sport Confidence and Self-Efficacty levels (r = .493) and State Sport Confidence and Trait Sport Confidence levels (r = .766) of the Super League players. Results also revealed a non-significant relationship between State Sport Confidence and Self-Efficacy levels (r = .227) and a postive significant relationship was found between Trait Sport Confidence and Self-Efficacty levels (r = .271) and State Sport Confidence and Trait Sport Confidence levels (r = .787) of the Second League players. Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) analyses revealed significant differences between the Super League and Second League players’ self-efficacy beliefs (F(1,99) = 7.188, p = .009). The linear regression results revealed that for both the Super League and Second League players, trait sport-confidence predicted state sport-confidence and self-efficacy. Finally, it was revealed that the super league and second league football players were similar with regard to sport confidence, whereas, they had different self-efficacy beliefs..
