This study examined the effects of a coping effectiveness training for adolescent soccer players (CETASP) intervention on coping self-efficacy (CSE), coping effectiveness (CE), and subjective performance. The participants were five male soccer players aged between 13 and 14 years (M = 13.6, SD = 0.55), who played for an English Premier League Soccer Academy. A single-subject multiple-baseline, across individuals design was employed. Results suggested that participants' CSE, CE, and subjective performance improved as a result of the CETASP intervention. Additionally, the social validation findings indicated that the participants were satisfied with the development of their coping skills and enjoyed the CETASP. This study provides empirical support for a framework that applied practitioners can use in "real world" settings to develop effective coping among academy soccer players.
