In this study Multidimensional Inventory of Sport Excellence (MUSI) is applied. From entire MUSI, several subscales are applied, measuring following psychological characteristics. The main goals of the study are: to determine the differences between top female handball and volleyball players in abovementioned psychological characteristics (1); to determine the correlations between these psychological characteristics, separately for handball and volleyball players (2). Sample of 35 handball and 56 volleyball female players from Rijeka, age 14-16 year, were included in the study. The results revealed that only one statistically significant difference is found between female handball and volleyball players in the aspects of MUSI (somatic anxiety). Approximately half of the correlations were low to moderate statistically significant correlated.
