Abstract

Assessment of stressors that contribute to burnout among intercollegiate student-athletes

Clinical Scenario: There are numerous stressors that present-day intercollegiate student-athletes have to endure during the course of their academic and athletic careers. A compilation of stressors creates overwhelming feelings that lead to mental, physical, and emotional burnout. There has been an increase in scientific articles that have examined the contributing factors of burnout among athletes as burnout rates have steadily increased over the past 20 years. However, there has been limited research conducted that has assessed the stressors affecting burnout in all of the collegiate divisions. Clinical Question: Which stressors most contribute to burnout among intercollegiate student-athletes? Summary of Key Findings: # articles identified We identified Clinical Bottom Line: There is moderate evidence to suggest that the most significant stressors noted were related to academics, physical well-being, and social contexts. Further research is necessary to solidify the results across varying settings and age groups. Strength of Recommendation:

Key Words: National Collegiate Athletic Association athletes, pressure, exhaustion
