Abstract

For female collegiate athletes there is added stress to what is normally placed on students to perform well, by their teammates, coaches, and themselves. There are many studies that focus on the relationship of burnout with factors such as well-being, social support, coaching style, etc. individually. However, there are few that examine them all together and in relation to athlete and coaching gender and class level. Coaches are such a vital role in the life of a student-athlete and many aspects of their coaching style, personality, and even gender could have an impact on the burnout rate and well-being. Additionally, it is safe to reason that the further along a student-athlete is in college would increase their burnout rate, but there are not many studies looking at the differences of burnout and well-being on upperclassmen vs. underclassmen (especially in relation to social support). The aim of this study is to further analyze the effect of social support by specific providers, such as coaches and their coaching style, teammates, etc. on burnout and well-being, in addition to how time spent playing an athlete’s respective sport in college relates to burnout.
