The purpose of this research was to determine if the implementation of mental training will improve athletic performance of Division III track and field athletes over a track and field season. The null hypothesis states that sports confidence will not improve athletic performance. Of the two groups tested, the posttest results of the sprinters did not accept the null hypothesis, which means there was no significant change from the results of the pretest. The hypothesis was accepted for the throwers, as there was a significant change in the results of the shot-put pretest and post-tests. This study involved the use of a pretest/posttest design to compare data from www.TFRRS.org and the use of a confidence questionnaire.
