Abstract: Sport can provide people a feeling of direction, a sense of ongoing challenge, as well as a spectrum of emotions that are occasionally challenging to feel in other contexts. When it comes to team sports vs. individual sports, both sides win. Students who participate in team or individual sports have a great opportunity to maintain or enhance their health. Athletes' agility, stamina, hand-eye coordination, and fine and gross motor skills are all enhanced by sports. To achieve the purpose of the study 50 subjects (25 Individual & 25 Team Sports) were selected by using convenient sampling from male & female sports persons representing NSSC SAI Diploma trainee. The age of the subjects ranged from 21 to 30 years. Psychological Skills Inventory for Sports (PSIS-R-5) (Mahoney, Gabriel & Perkins, 1987) was used to measure the comparative analysis of the psychological skill of sports people’s participation in individual and team sports. Descriptive statistics such as mean and standard deviation (SD) and Paired‘t’ test and SPSS software was used for the calculation and analysis. There are significant differences in PSIS of sports participation in individual and team sports. It was noted that concentration and confidence and motivation is higher in individual sports compared to team sports. Anxiety control and team emphasis with higher level observed in team sports compare to individual sports.
