Abstract [en]

Elite youth athletes with dual careers are under pressure to thrive in sport as well academically. Mental factors are important for development in both the short and long perspective. Psychological flexibility and self-compassion has in earlier studies been highlighted as vital aspects for enhancing athletes’ performance and their well-being. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between psychological flexibility, self-compassion, fear of failure and if these factors can predict psychological well-being in young elite athletes. Participants are between 16 and 19 years old and compete on junior elite level in both team and individual sports, and were enrolled at a Swedish sport academy. The results shows that psychological flexibility and self-compassion can predict psychological well-being. This point out the necessary for athletes to develop both psychological flexibility and self-compassion to enhance psychological well-being.
