Generalized self-efficacy (GSE) and self-esteem (SE) are assumed to be influenced by sports experiences. Therefore, this study attempts to clarify the actual levels of GSE and SE among Japanese sports university students. We administered a questionnaire including GSE and SE measures to 1014 such students. Results showed that women scored higher than men on GSE, but men scored higher than women on SE. Students who participated in sports scored higher on GSE and SE than students who did not. Senior students scored higher on GSE and SE than freshmen, sophomore, and junior students. These results shed light on the actual levels of GSE and SE among Japanese sports university students.
