Abstract

Sporting and sport psychological accomplishments are an important part of Scandinavian culture. Psychological factors have been demonstrated to have a major impact on both participation and achievements in sport. Sport psychology is about precisely these factors. The diversity of sport psychology research in Scandinavia is presented for the first time in this scholarly volume. Contributors from key sport psychology research teams in Sweden, Denmark and Norway present resarch covering a wide range of issues in the book’s twelve chapters. By publishing the contributions collectively as an Open Access anthology, the authors wish to reach researchers in the field of sport psychology, sport psychology advisers and professionals throughout Scandinavia. The volume will also be relevant to anyone with any interest in sport. The editors of the book are Tommy Haugen and Rune Høigaard, who are both affiliated with the Department of Public Health, Sport and Nutrition in the Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences at the University of Agder.

Abstract

"The purpose of this study was to examine factorial, convergent, discriminant, and criteria&#xD;validity of a multi-dimensional scale measuring coaching efficacy (Feltz, Chase, Moritz, &&#xD;Sullivan, 1999). The sample consisted of 281 Norwegian grassroot football coaches taking part&#xD;in two data collections (across the football season) within the Norwegian arm of the international&#xD;PAPA project (intervention group, n = 193) and control group, n = 88). Latent variable&#xD;modeling supported a 4-factor model reflecting Motivation efficacy, Strategy efficacy, Technique&#xD;efficacy and Character efficacy. An introductory ESEM analysis of the 24-item coaching&#xD;efficacy scale yielded an acceptable solution after omitting two items. A parceling approach of&#xD;the twenty-two items were then converted into eleven parcels to examine factorial validity and&#xD;time and group invariance. The four-factor model based on parcels obtained good fit indices:&#xD;(S-B χ2 = [df = 29, n = 222] = 38.622, p < .011 (ns.); RMSEA = .039; 90% (CI = .000–.068);&#xD;CFI = .99; SRMR = .023). Moreover, we obtained strong support for time invariance for a&#xD;merged solution of the two groups of coaches. Invariance across time for the intervention&#xD;and control group separately was supported at time 1, but not at time 2. Satisfactorily convergent,&#xD;discriminant, and criteria validity were also supported. The scale needs further validation&#xD;before use in intervention studies."&#xD;

Abstract

"The study aim was twofold: 1) Review basic principles of test-retest reliability,&#xD;and 2) investigate the reliability of a test procedure of a one-minute time trial on an ergometer&#xD;bicycle in relatively well-trained young adults. The subjects (N = 12) completed three “all-out”&#xD;intervals on the bicycle ergometers where average watt produced was recorded. The results&#xD;of the experiments showed no significant mean differences across tests, high ICC (.996), low&#xD;CV, TE, and SEM. The findings suggested that the ergometer test had the ability to produce&#xD;accurate and stable measurements. It also indicated that measurement biases that affected the&#xD;results did not seem to occur."&#xD;

Abstract

"The purpose of this study was to examine the self-talk of elite triathletes during a&#xD;competition. Furthermore, we wanted to investigate possible differences in content and frequency&#xD;in self-talk during a triathlon competition among elite and club triathletes. Participants&#xD;were ten members of the Norwegian triathlon national team as well as ten triathletes&#xD;competing at Norwegian club level. The competition consisted of an indoor sprint-distance triathlon (a 750 m pool swim leg, a 20 km ergometer cycling leg, and a 5 km treadmill run leg).&#xD;Self-talk content and frequency were measured using a Norwegian version of the Automatic&#xD;Self-Talk Questionnaire for Sports (ASTQS). Overall, results showed that all athletes reported&#xD;more positive than negative self-talk during competition. Moreover, elite athletes reported&#xD;more confidence-inducing self-talk compared to the club level athletes during the swim. The&#xD;findings also indicated that elite athletes were more able than club athletes to maintain higher&#xD;levels of positive self-talk during the latter stages of the competition (5 km run). This tendency&#xD;was reversed regarding negative self-talk. Elite athletes reported less negative self-talk compared&#xD;to club level athletes towards the end of the competition."&#xD;
