The aim of the present study is to compare frustration tolerance capacity of secondary students on the basis of their participation in sports. 50 secondary student athletes (Ave. age 17.41 yrs.) were selected from secondary schools of Bilaspur city. To fulfil the objectives of the present study, another set of 50 non-player secondary students (Ave. age 16.92 yrs.) were also selected. The criterion for selection of athletes was participation in district/state level tournaments in any sporting event. Random sampling method was used for selection of sample in the present study. To assess frustration tolerance capacity of selected secondary student athletes and non-athletes, Reactions to frustration scale, prepared by Dixit and Shrivastava (2011) was the preferred choice. It consists in all 40 items which assess aggression, resignation, fixation and regression. The reliability of this test is 0.79. Lower the score superior is the frustration tolerance capacity of the subject is the direction of scoring. Results indicate that frustration tolerance capacity of secondary student athletes was far more superior as compared to secondary student non-athletes. On the basis of results and associated discussion it was concluded that participation in competitive sports may be incorporated in curriculum so that secondary student’s frustration tolerance capacity can be enhanced.
