Flow and Metacognition in Ice Hockey

London Metropolitan University, Psychology

Most research with ice hockey is done at the physical level. Very limited research has been conducted looking at the psychological processes at play. My research thus far has identified new components of flow and metacognition that have not been previously studied. A new scale has been created to measure these items and determine their relationship with performance. For this part of the study, you will be asked to complete a series of 5 questionnaires. The first one is based upon my findings, measuring a range of factors around playing ice hockey from pregame preparation through thoughts during the game and finally post-game recovery. After this questionnaire, you will then be prompted to complete a further 4 shorter questionnaires so that the responses of the first questionnaire can be compared to these to determine any correlations and as part of the reliability and validity testing.

Your Impact

The goal of this study is to come out with an instrument to measure aspects not previously studied with ice hockey but look to be important and potentially predictors for success and performance.
