Therefore, in recent years, the notion of athlete well-being has become increasingly important in the policy debate. For example, the Australian Institute of Sport ( 2019

Drawing from the theories of self-determination (SDT; Ryan & Deci, 2000) achievement goals (AGT; Nicholls, 1989), and, in particular, Vallerand’s four-stage casual sequence embedded in his hierarchical model of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation (HMIEM; Vallerand, 1997, 2001), this study tested a motivational model in the sport context via structural equation modeling (SEM). Based on the responses of 370 young male soccer players (M age = 14.77), the path analysis results offered overall support for the proposed model. A perceived task-involving climate emerged as a positive predictor of the satisfaction of the three psychological needs, while a perceived ego-involving climate was a negative predictor of related-ness satisfaction. The results also support positive paths between satisfaction of the three psychological needs and intrinsic motivation, while intrinsic motivation was positively linked to subjective vitality and future intention to participate. The implications of the coach-created motivational climate are discussed in the light of its implications for the quality and potential maintenance of sport involvement among young athletes.

Based on previous research demonstrating improvements in athlete well-being and functional abilities as rehabilitation progresses ( Evans et al., 2000 ; Clement et al., 2015 ; Tracey, 2003 ), we hypothesized that both control and experimental groups would demonstrate changes over time in our

Person-centered investigations of athlete burnout have utility to unearth novel information about this developmental experience within the social environment of competitive sport. Guided by extant theory, conceptually proposed developmental patterns of athlete burnout were examined across a season as expressed in profiles of emotional and physical exhaustion, reduced accomplishment, and sport devaluation perceptions. Athlete social perceptions were also explored as predictors of profile membership. Collegiate athletes (N = 129) completed established assessments of study variables at four in-season time points. Latent profile analysis revealed profiles characterized by athletes experiencing the three burnout dimensions similarly at any given time point, with the notable exception of exhaustion being more frequently experienced in some profiles. Social support perceptions predicted profile membership with moderate success. Trends in profile stability provide some support for consideration of exhaustion-driven burnout experiences. Results shed light on the theoretical pathways of burnout development and inform continued longitudinal burnout research efforts.

Nevertheless, the current literature does not offer a theoretical background rooted in motivation psychology for why retiring out of a sense of personal choice and identification is more beneficial for athleteswell-being than retiring because of internal or external

-heat stress for inducing desirable metabolic adaptations to training have not been fully elucidated in humans. Prolonged exercise under heat stress can also induce additional physiological stress that may have implications for athlete well-being, such as endotoxemia, 2 suppressed appetite, 3 and elevated
