This paper investigated the experiences of student-athletes in British Columbia and aimed to address the limitations highlighted by the developers of the College Student-Athlete Life Stress Scale (CSALSS). By using the College Student-Athletes Life Stress Scale, factors which were the leading contributors of stress among student-athletes in British Columbia (BC) were identified. Furthermore, researchers discovered coaching relationships and injuries are significantly associated with the largest fluctuation in overall stress levels experienced at the population level.
