dc.description.abstractAim. This study explored the mediating role of sport confidence upon (1) sources of sport confidence- performance relationship and (2) imagery- performance relationship. Methods. Participants were 157 competitive athletes who completed state measures of confidence level/ sources, imagery type and performance within one hour after competition. Results. Among the current sample, confirmatory factor analysis revealed appropriate support for the nine-factor SSCQ and the five-factor SIQ. Mediational analysis revealed that sport confidence had a mediating influence upon the achievement source of confidence – performance relationship. In addition, both cognitive and motivational imagery types were found to be important sources of confidence, as sport confidence mediated imagery type- performance relationship. Conclusion. Findings indicated that athletes who construed confidence from their own achievements and report multiple images on a more frequent basis are likely to benefit from enhanced levels of state sport confidence and subsequent performance.en_US
