I study on burnout levels of professional football players. So I need info about burnout in sport.

I thought that this was an interesting topic because I often wonder myself if there will come to a point when i'm just done, burntout. I am a nordic skier on the St. Lawrence University team and have been racing since I was 2 years old. Sometimes I feel like I can't do it anymore and want to explore other areas of my life. I personally think the term "burnout" generalizes a feeling of reaching a satisfaction level within ones sport, and no longer needs to experience the competitive level. From there, it will still always be a prt of ones life but just in a different way.
