ARCE, Constantino et al. Adaptation of Sources of the Sport Confidence Questionnaire (SSCQ) to the Spanish context. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2010, vol.3, n.2, pp.37-40. ISSN 1989-3809.

This study constitutes the first step in adapting the Sources of Sport Confidence Questionnaire (SSCQ) to the Spanish context and, in particular, to the sport of football. Three phases were adhered to in the process; the current paper describes Phase 3, in which the translated Spanish version of the original questionnaire-with a total of 42 items grouped into 9 factors representing the 9 sources of confidence habitually used by athletes-was subjected to a confirmatory factor analysis. A sample comprising 402 young federated footballers was employed. Successive confirmatory analysis successfully replicated a Spanish version of the SSCQ, with 34 items grouped into 8 factors or sources of confidence. The model's global fit indices were satisfactory and all factorial loads significant. In addition, owing to the excellent psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the questionnaire, it was also verified that it was simple to apply and easily understandable for the athletes. With regard to future studies, it would be expedient to develop less specific versions of the questionnaire which can be applied to any sport. The invariance in the structure of the sources of confidence depending on the gender and age of athletes will also need to be addressed.
