ABSTRACT
The relation between conditions (more stable) and psychological skills (training need), discipline and category contribute to the design of psychological training plans. In such plans, controlling anxiety is a critical factor. This study analysed a sample of 112 male and female athletes aged 16 to 45 from a variety of disciplines (volleyball, tennis and swimming) and categories (amateur, professional and youth). Questionnaires measuring psychological characteristics (CPRD) and anxiety levels (STAI) were administered. The results showed that men scored higher than women in cognitive coping skills (control of stress and mental ability). In contrast, women perceived both state and trait anxiety more intensely than men. Regarding discipline and category, the largest statistically significant differences were observed in variables related to mental ability.
