Abstract

There has been no research on whether the 5R program can increase social identity (SI) and the benefits surrounding this in the ever-growing domain of esports. Additionally, no study has tested this program in a shorter timeframe than five months. Therefore, this research delivered the program virtually to a university esports team in just over a two month period to analyse its effectiveness and practicality in this ever increasing results-driven and time-poor world of sport. Members’ data all went in the direction expected however, there was no significant difference from baseline to six-weeks post-intervention in social identification, collective efficacy, resilient vulnerabilities and performance. Although, resilient characteristics did significantly increase and social validation data illustrated the program to be beneficial. The applied implications for this program generally and specifically for esports are discussed, as well as study limitations and opportunities for future research.
