Sport & Performance Psychology Laboratory


The Sport and Performance Psychology Lab at the University of Toronto focuses on understanding the psychological aspects of sport participation and performance.

Our primary areas of research are:

  • stress, coping, emotions, and emotion regulation in sport

  • social and interpersonal processes of emotion, emotion regulation, and coping in sport

  • athlete mental health and well-being

  • youth athletes, parent and coach influences in youth sport

We use a variety of qualitative and quantitative approaches to understand the experiences of athletes, parents, and coaches to promote positive sport experiences.
