EFPA created a Task Force in Sport Psychology in 2011 to collect information on the education, training, supervision, professional practice and organizations in sport psychology in Europe. The Task Force in Sport Psychology was asked to suggest improvements in the education and training of sport psychologists in Europe in collaboration with sport organizations (e.g., European Federation of Sport Psychology, FEPSAC, International Society of Sport Psychology, ISSP). Sport psychology is rapidly expanding as increasing numbers of psychologists are required and employed by sports club, federations, and organizations.
