Abstract: Aim of this study was the development and initial validation of a Dutch instrument for measuring the mental skills of athletes. After an extensive study of the literature written on mental ability and the literature written on already existing English instruments measuring mental ability of athletes a first version of an instrument to serve this purpose has been developed: the Athlete’s Mental Skills Scale. The reliability of this instrument has been controlled with findings from a first data gathering. This resulted in a revised version of this instrument which has been controlled for its validity with findings from a second data gathering. Results from this study provide support for the reliability and the validity of the revised Athlete’s Mental Skill Scale
