The purpose of the present study was to examine the relationships among the cognitive appraisal model of athletic injury predictors. Specifically, predictions concerning the role of the personality factors of hardiness and the situational factor of life stress in prediction cognitive appraisal of injury were examined. Intercollegiate athletes (n=187) complete a pre-season survey. The pre-season survey, which contained background information, injury history, the Cognitive Hardiness Inventory (Nowack, 1990), and Life Event Survey for Collegiate Athletes (Petrie, 1992), was administered 1 to 2 weeks prior to the season. The correlations showed some support for the hypothesis that hardier athletes would appraise rehabilitation as less difficult than less hardy athletes. Future researchers should consider the advantages of the cognitive appraisal model specifically taking individual difference into account when dealing with injured athletes.
