Abstract: Sports competitions are provided with home court advantageous effects, but also with home court disad-vantageous effects from the perspective of psychology. The study of home court disadvantageous effects can help home court athletes reduce unnecessary failures. By means of literature research, field observation and logic analy-sis, the authors analyzed such performances of home court athletes as too high arousing level, blind self confidence, too much pressure and deviated perception orientation, thus put forward the following home court responding strategies: correct recognition deviation; adjust the arousing level; alleviate mental pressure; carry out action spe-cific adaptation training.
Key words: sports psychology；sports competition；home court disadvantage；perception orientation
