This study investigates the association between athletes’ emotional intelligence and age, gender, academics, and sport performance. Participants in this study consisted of 181 NCAA Division II athletes from one faith-based university. Results indicate that no relationship between emotional intelligence and age, academics, and sport performance exist. A significant relationship was found when comparing gender to emotional intelligence. Male athletes scored higher than females in overall EI, self-management, and self-awareness. Furthermore, the study found gender was a predictor of GPA. Females had a slightly higher GPA than males. Descriptive statistics are included to show several trends depicted in tables and bar graphs that are identifiable by viewing the tendencies of the means.
