sport psychology : LUSENET : APA Division 47 Exercise and Sport Psychology : One Thread

I am doing a critical review on the subject of sport psychology on youth and anxiety. I do welcome a suggestion on booklist or journals that are of best relevance. Since this is my first attempt to do such kind of research, please feel free to give me advice and suggestion. I am much obliged if some kind of guidance or similar research works can be kindly shared. I am doing my BED programme in Physical Education and Sport Science in Hong Kong. Heartfelt thanks for reply in advance.
