Abstract

This case study follows the journey of a trainee sport and exercise psychologist who provided sport psychology support to a top-tier, professional League of Legends team across a competitive season. The purpose of this case study is to highlight some of the pertinent professional and contextual demands associated with the process of embedding a three-level (e.g., individual, team, coach) sport psychology service at the professional level of esports. Specifically, a detailed account of the micro-processes involved in the design and delivery of the sport psychology support are offered, along with critical reflections on the lead author’s professional judgements throughout the case in relation to their model of practice and the contextual factors faced. It is hoped this case study can provide a granular and thoughtful account of how to provide sport psychology support at the professional level in League of Legends.
