INTRODUCTION

For the purpose of "talent identification," it seems important to clarify the most effective psychological characteristics of athletes in different sports for the lower age groups‌ (childhood‌ & teenager). The goal of the present study, therefore, was to identify the most critical mental skills among elite young judo athletes in comparison with a counterpart non-elite group in‌ Hamedan‌.

METHODS

56 elite and 56 non-elite judo female athletes aged 14-17 from the province of Hamedan completed the Ottawa Mental Skills Assessment Tools-3 (OMSAT-3). This questionnaire measures‌ three‌ main conceptual components including: foundation skills (goal setting, self- confidence and commitment), psycho-somatic skills (stress reactions, fear control, relaxation and activation) and cognitive skills (focusing, refocusing, imagery, mental‌ practice‌ and‌ competition planning).

RESULTS

Results showed‌ significant‌ differences‌ between elite and non-elite judo athletes in all three components of mental skills. In addition, elite athletes compared to non‌-elites‌ were‌ significantly better in goal setting, commitment, stress reactions‌, fear‌ control, focusing, and refocusing.
