The SPQ20 measures 20 mental skills covering 4 areas of mental toughness: work ethic, confidence, sportsmanship, and aggressiveness. The instrument is designed to help improve the mental attitude and skills of professional and amateur athletes of all ages. It enables sport psychologists and coaches to measure the mental skills level, confidence, and toughness of athletes in order to commence work with them. The feedback report provides a rich picture of an athlete's mental toughness and mental skills along with performance improvement tips.
"The SPQ20 promises to be a useful tool for sport psychologists and coaches in advising and working with athletes...the instrument shows promise as an additional tool for athletes, coaches, and sport psychologists who seek to describe and improve athletic performance."
