Author(s):

Saramie S Belleza and Ronald Ompoc

Abstract:

This research was conducted in Agusan del Norte. Participants were high school athletes who competed in various local and national events. The phenomenological approach was used in the qualitative research method. This study sought to learn more about how sports anxiety affects athlete's performance and how they deal with their anxieties before and during competitions. This synthesis also addressed cognitive and somatic anxiety in relation to athletes' performance. To collect the necessary data, we conducted a qualitative study and interviewed ten participants, five for in-depth interviews and five for focus groups. Data triangulation was achieved through in-depth interviews, focus group discussions, and us, the researchers, as third informants.
