Resilience in sports psychology is a key psychological factor of sports activities. It can be also be defined as the bouncing back of an individual from any traumatic experience or disturbances. Self-esteem is also a critical variable that impact on sports performance. Self-esteem is an overview of an individual about himself. It’s a confidence in one’s own worth and abilities. The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between resilience, self-esteem and sports performance. To achieve the purpose this study examined 100 athletes including 60 males and 40 females across North India, with cross sport participation as well as achievement at distinct levels participated in the study for this objective. All subjects completed the Nicholson McBride Resilience Questionnaire developed by McBride 2010 designed to measure resilience level, Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale developed by Rosenberg M. 1965 which examines self-esteem and their coaches’ ratings on several sports performance dimensions were also collected using Cross Sport Athletic Rating Scale developed by Darhl M. Pedersen And Craig L. Manning 2003. Our findings indicated that that resilience and self-esteem plays a vital role in influencing sports performance. The present research is productive for athletes in recognizing their self-esteem and resilience level and how it facilitates or impedes their sports performance. It likewise shows that recognizing confidence and resilience of players is vital in light of the fact that mentors by distinguishing players’ characteristics could utilize them in best occasions and reasonable positions. Likewise, by knowing players in setting of their resilience and confidence, the mentors can handle them during the games.
