Sofia Pettersson (2011). Miljön kring Dalarnas damfotbollsspelare – Vad påverkar deras möjligheter till utveckling? (The environment surrounding female football players in Dalarna, Sweden – What factors affect their opportunities to develop?) Bachelor Essay in Swedish. Umeå: Umeå university, Department of Education

The following study investigated the environment in which female football players in the district of Dalarna in Sweden operate. The aim was to identify the elements that affect the players’ ability to develop according to their own potential, values and differences. Questions regarding how coaches and leaders perceive the availability of football in Dalarna and in which way players are given opportunities to develop in accordance with their own potential, values and differences were answered. Questionnaires were used as method, using the answers from 22 active coaches and leaders for female football as responders. Different factors in the environment were reported as influential for the players’ individual development among which the access to appropriate training facilities and the number of active players in each team were identified as existing and prevalent problems. In spite of this many coaches reported a need for more female football teams, creating an interesting organization paradox for future research.
