Background/Objectives: This research aims to provide data helping self-management and stress-coping through marine sports by empirically investigating the relationship between self-management and stress-coping of participants in marine sports. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This research was conducted on 277 club members participating in marine sports in Seoul, Ansan, Seosan, and Gunsan. The collected data reached the following final conclusions, by drawing upon correlation and multiple regression analysis with factor extraction and verified validity and reliability. Findings: First, of the self-management of participants in marine sports, mind-management has a significant relationship with problemfocused coping, social support seeking, and aesthetic thinking. This indicates that higher levels of mind-management among participants in marine sports lead to higher problem-focused coping, social support seeking, and aesthetic thinking. Second, of self-management of participants in marine sports, mind-management, interpersonal-management, and physical-management have significant relationships with emotional coping. This indicates that higher levels of mind-management, interpersonal-management, and physical-management of participants in marine sports lead to higher emotional coping. Several problems revealed by this research and suggestions for future research are presented here. Novelty / Improvement: This study is limited to participants in marine sports, the conclusions should be verified by extending this effort to diverse subjects. Second, this research is focused on the relationships between factors, which makes it difficult to compare basic characteristics. For further research, a prerequisite would be to analyze the characteristics of participants as well as the relationships between factors.
