Abstract

Professional athletes are thought to be at particular risk of experiencing high levels of chronic stress (Messner, 1992). Despite this vulnerability, professional athletes are under-represented in the stress-in-sport literature and little is known about the health effects of the stressors they experience. The present study aimed to address this gap in the literature by assessing the capacity of the variables contained in the job strain model (JSM) and football-specific stressors to predict the strain experienced by professional Australian footballers.
