A review of the literature finds a series of articles discussing developmental problems in the field of sport psychology, particularly regarding the definition of professional roles and the establishment of credentialing criteria for these roles. A committee formed by the United States Olympic Committee was the first to establish concrete guidelines, which are reviewed here for their potential positive and negative effects as a model for sport psychology.

I would like to thank Evelyn Hall, Ken Ravizza, Robert Rotella, and the Journal reviewers for their comments and suggestions on an earlier version of this paper.
