Ali You might want to look up any research by Jay Coakley - he is a sociologist and has some interesting things to say about burnout in sport. Try Sociology of Sport Journal 1992, 9 271-285.For a stress perspective look at Smith R.E. 1986 Journal of Sports Psychology 8 36-50. Coakley's article seems to make a lot of sense. He indicates that it is the constriction of athletes to one identity or sense of self that leaves them vulnerable to burnout. A more recent article by coakley and Hughes is also worth finding. Sorry I don't have that reference.

Hope this helps cheers adam
