"The present case study investigates stress and recovery of the Danish national under-
20 ice hockey players during a training camp and the following World Championship. The aims
were to track their stress-recovery states longitudinally, and to map their main sources of stress
and recovery. Methods included a survey, qualitative interviews and a coach diary. Results showed
well-balanced stress-recovery states during the entire period, and the athletes stated that
this positively affected their well-being, and performance. The athletes’ perceived sources of
stress and recovery were classified into organizational, social, personal and athletic, with the
organizational decisions and strategies playing a major role in reducing unnecessary stress and
providing a good setting for engaging in recovery. The results lead us to suggest that coaches and
managers be very mindful of the potential influence of their decisions on the athletes’ stress and
recovery when preparing training camps and participation in major competitions."
