 Performance Block Prevalence and Contributing Factors in Individualized versus Team Sports

Performance block is a blanket term that research is trying to propose to replace sport specific terms such as yips, mental block, or lost move syndrome. Though symptoms may present slightly different between the sport specific terms, they all have the same core experience of a sudden inability to perform a previously automatic skill. This study compared performance block prevalence between individual and team sports at PLNU and found similar results.
