The aim of this work is to present the adaptation process of the Sports Performance Psychological Inventory (IPED) for its use with athletes from Argentina. First, linguistic and conceptual equivalence was studied by expert assessment and the application of the first version of the scale to athletes from different ages (target population). Then, the modified version of the scale was applied to 664 athletes of both genders, aged between 10 and 67 years old (M = 25,31; SD = 10,35) in two evaluation forms: paper and pencil (n = 309) and online (n =355), using and assessment platform. Scale structure was studied by confirmatory factor analysis in different samples of participants, calculating validity and reliability indexes. Also, internal consistency was studied, differences in the two types of evaluation and differences between groups (by gender and level of competition). Results showed that the adapted scale for its use with athletes from Argentin, manages to assess in a valid and reliable way psychological skills associated with athletic performance.
