Abstract :
Competition may be a stimulating challenge for athletes and effecting the physical and cognitive emotions. This research was conducted to Description of stress management techniques in group and individual athletes in Rasht City. The research sample consisted of 312 male athletes (137 individual and 175 team) that were participated in this research. Subjects completed the scale of coping styles in sports questionnaire. Data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation and paired and independent sample t-test. For all statistical comparisons, the level of significance was set at p < 0.05. The results showed that athletes for coping with stress used the avoidant style more than the confrontation style. Athletes in team sports used the avoidant coping style more than the athletes in individual sports, but there weren’t a significant difference between these two groups with confrontation coping style. Therefore, using the avoidant style by athletes is suitable for coping with sports stressors because ignoring the stressor events in uncontrollable situations and also in situations that require immediate decisions is a proper way to coping stress.
