Athletes require a minimum duration of ten years to master their particular sport, and they must possess a considerable degree of engagement and motivation to effectively overcome any setbacks that may come their way. The realm of sports can be quite demanding and athletes often have to contend with various stressors and challenges, such as excessive expectations from parents and coaches, an imbalanced emphasis on sports compared to other aspects of life, and excessive training sessions, all of which contribute to burnout. Research reveals that motivation is self-determined and a strong sense of involvement in sports has a considerable impact in reducing athlete burnout, thereby advancing their psychological well-being and augmenting their performance in athletic endeavours. One of the research gaps is most of the studies that have explored the relationship between motivation, burnout, and engagement in sports are concentrated in Europe, and less research is conducted in Asia. An online survey was conducted and collected from 30 adult participants in a pilot test. It indicated moderate to strong reliability ranging from .53 to .95 among three scales (i.e., motivation, burnout, and engagement). The result showed that intrinsic motivation is negatively correlated with burnout ( r = -.43, p < .05) and positively correlated with engagement ( r = .80, p < .01). It also showed burnout and engagement are negatively correlated ( r = -.58, p < .01). The preliminary findings illustrate the relationship among these factors. The main study will be conducted in March and April.
