The German Association of Sport Psychology (ASP) represents sport psychologists of the Federal Republic of Germany in areas concerning university aspects and extrauniversity aspects. ASP was founded in 1969. At the moment it consists of about 250 members. Conferences on topics concerning sport psychology are held annually. The managing comittee is elected by the members every two years. For the actual election period Prof. Jörn Munzert, Giessen, is in the chair of the managing comittee. ASP cooperates with the following psychological and sport science institutions:
- ASP is a member of the European sport psychology association, Fédération des Sports et des Activités Corporelles (FEPSAC), and of the International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP).
- The cooperation between ASP and Alliance of German Psychologists (BDP) concentrates on the joint (ASP/BDP) curriculum "Advanced Training in Sport Psychology and Health Promotion".
- ASP is a section of the German Society of Sport Science (DVS). DVS represents all German sport scientists and is divided into different sections (e.g. training science, biomechanics).
- The main publishing organ of ASP is the scientific journal "Psychologie & Sport" (published by Karl Hofmann, Schorndorf).
