Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the differences among all current graduate applied sport psychology programs regarding academic criteria and training requirements. Literature suggests that cultivating competent professionals in sport psychology includes appropriate applied experience opportunities, ongoing supervision from certified professionals, and a standardized certification that proves competency in all aspects of service delivery. Using the Directory of Graduate Applied Sport Psychology Programs, variables of interest regarding recommended aspects of training were investigated. After conducting descriptive statistics, there was significant variance found among all programs. Results concluded the need for more standardized curriculum and training in continuing education sport psychology programs.
