The purpose of this study was to develop an Evaluation Scale of Movement Imagery：Blind soccer version（ESMI-BS）. Study 1 investigated the reliability and validity of the ESMI-BS．Study 2 confirmed the rank correlation coefficient for ESMI-BS, dribbling time, and goal shooting rate. Results indicated that ESMI-BS had high reliability and validity. Moreover, a negative rank correlation was suggested between the internal imagery and dribbling time; a positive rank correlation was indicated between the overlooking imagery and the rate of goal shooting. Thus, it was concluded that ESMI-BS could be used as an evaluation of movement imagery for blind soccer players.
