The relationship between Post Adversity Growth (PAG) and Social Support among 348 female collegiate athletes (FCAs) in the United States was explored. FCAs logged on to an online survey and completed four questionnaires. Participants provided background information after which they described a sport related acute stressor they experienced in the past 2 years, excluding the last 6 months. They completed the Perceived Social Support Questionnaire (PSSQ) that assessed the perceived availability of different types of social support (i.e., emotional, esteem, informational, and tangible) the FCAs had with respect to the adversity they described. Finally, they completed the Posttraumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI) that measured the degree of change they felt as a result of the stressor. Correlation analyses were completed and no meaningful relationships between PAG and social support were observed. Further investigation is required in order to understand the mechanism by which social support facilitates PAG.
