Some athletes who are benched may experience identity crises, the impact of which may be long-lasting and far-reaching for them. Case-study interviews with three athletes who have experienced such crises are presented.

Suggestions are offered for athletes, coaches, and sport psychology consultants to help respond to such experiences effectively.
