Paola Briganti, Luisa Varriale, Maria Ferrara


The purpose of the paper is to investigate the stress phenomenon within sport settings. Specifically, this conceptual study aims to evidence how stress phenomenon can affect the sport setting with focus on performance and, at the same time, if and how the same context and sport category can significantly impact on level of stress for individuals, mostly sporting referees.

The study, drawing from the literature on the topic, also provides some interesting proposals for preventing and managing stress for sport referees, for instance focusing the attention on coping styles for stress and educational and training programs through the resilience theory.
