Athletic identity: Hercules' muscles or Achilles heel?



International Journal of Sport Psychology 24(2): 237-254

Athletic identity can be defined as the degree to which an individual identifies with the athlete role. In this article, the athletic identity construct is discussed within the framework of a multidimensional self-concept. Positive and negative factors that are potentially associated with a strong athletic identity are considered. A measure of athletic identity, the Athletic Identity Measurement Scale (AIMS), is introduced.
