Abstract

This study aimed to examine risk factor of sleep problems related with gender, age, levels of physical exercise among varsity student-athletes. Sample included 195 varsity student-athletes from six universities. Data gathering included personal and demographic information, physical exercise level, and sleep health using cross-sectional design. The descriptive analysis showed that over 50 percent of the entire sample was sleeping less than 7 hours per night. In addition, one-fourth of the participants were classified as poor sleepers. Mann-Whitney test indicated that female gender compared with male, lower age compared with greater age, low to moderate levels of physical exercise relative to high level of exercise were more vulnerable to experience sleep problems. These factors should be taken into account to counter sleep issues in varsity student-athletes.
