The original Sport Interference Checklist (SIC) is a mental-health screening instrument designed to assess the extent to which mental health factors interfere with athletes’ performance during sport training or competition. In addition, the SIC appraises whether athletes are interested in pursuing psychological treatment for the aforementioned factors. Although validated, the SIC does not assess how the aforementioned factors affect athletes’ performance outside of sports. Doing so would permit professionals to examine the influence of these factors across sport training, sport competition, and life outside of sports.
The purpose of this study was to determine the psychometric properties and clinical utility of the Sport Interference Checklist’s Life Outside of Sports Inventory (SIC – LOSI), developed to evaluate the impact of mental health issues on athlete performance outside of sports. A factor analysis was performed to determine the factor structure of the scale in addition to analyses of internal consistency and convergent validity. Clinical cutoff scores were also generated to assist mental health referrals. Future recommendations for athlete-specific mental health screening are also discussed.
