Competition Anxiety in Egyptian Children Sportsmen

Abstract

Studying the anxiety of child sportsmen has increased in the past ten years. A lot of studies aimed to identify the causes of anxiety and how to minimize it. Our hypothesis is that child athletes suffer anxiety resulting from the training and participation in competitions in addition to natural anxiety factors apart from sport. If this hypothesis is correct, we would expect an increase in intensity of anxiety for children during the competitions in three types of sports. The aim of this study was to identify the difference of competition anxiety in children during their participation in sports competitions. Study summaries with football players (n = 21), Handball players (n = 21), and judo players (n = 21)(and results indicate the existence of significant differences between football, handball and judo children players in their scale of anxiety.
