M. K. N. Haziyanti, A.R.M. Shariff, Y. Ahmad


This study attempted to distinguish issues and athletes’ problem into the category of performance function based on Multilevel Classification System for Sport Psychology (MCS-SP). In this study, athletes’ performance function were devided into Performance Development (PD) (n=54) and Performance Dysfunction (Pdy) (n=43). Using Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) and Young Schema Questionnaire (YSQ-S3), the overall level of mindfulness skills and thinking schemes were moderate. PD athletes were standing
out significantly in mindfulness skills and few elements of thinking schemes such as self-sacrificing, unrelenting standards, and entitlement. Meanwhile, Pdy athletes were more likely to be in other side of thinking schemes elements. It can be seen that MCS-SP can be used as a standard reference for identifying athletes’ performance functional status and planning for better psychological interventions.
