The Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP) aims to actively contribute to the global promotion of applied sport psychology. To reach this goal, AASP has been implementing a systematic plan of action to:
- Create and advance bilateral partnerships with other organizations worldwide
- Actively involve international, established and developing professionals
- Promote and support its members' awareness of the international sport psychology movement outside North America.
As a main actor in this internationalization effort, the International Relations Committee (IRC), in addition to other initiatives, is in charge of this webpage, aimed to be a resource for any individual or organization interested in AASP's efforts and activities.

International Regional Conferences
On February 21-22, 2015, AASP held its first International Regional Conference at Loughborough University (UK), the first AASP conference ever held in Europe. This historic two-day event provided an exciting setting for international scholars, early career researchers, and practitioners to exchange ideas and explore numerous topics within sport and exercise psychology. The 111 delegates who attended from Europe created a fantastic platform to share ideas and learn from different cultures. As space precludes a detailed description of each presentation, this review will present a brief overview of the conference. Speakers included Pete Lindsay, Chris Harwood, Urban Johnson, David Fletcher, Mustafa Sarkar, and Paul Morgan.
