Main Article Content



The study aims to (1) identify the level of mindfulness and the level of emotional sensitivity of young volleyball players, and (2) identify the relationship, contribution, and influence of mindfulness with their emotional sensitivity. A descriptive correlational design was used to guide this study. The study included a sample of (64) players who were purposively selected to constitute (86.486%) of the community represented by volleyball players for youth clubs in Baghdad and the middle Iraq who are continuing their training for the purpose of participating in the 2020-2021 local sports season. The mindfulness scale designed for volleyball players and the emotional sensitivity scale designed for players in the sports environment were also adopted. Data were analyzed using the statistical package for social science. The researcher concluded that young volleyball players need to improve their level of mindfulness and reduce their level of emotional sensitivity. Furthermore, mindfulness is related, contributed, and negatively influenced by their emotional sensitivity. Efforts must be intensified among specialists in sports psychology and coaches of local clubs and their cooperation to support raising the level of mindfulness by simulating the actual reality to measure it because it has an important role in reducing the level of sensitivity of young volleyball players.
