Abstract [en]

This paper presents a study of a successful athletic talent development environment (ATDE) in soccer: the youth academy of FC Midtjylland in Denmark. The study was made with a holistic ecological approach including two working models to describe the academy and analyze the factors behind its successful work. Data consisted of ten in--‐depth semi--‐structured interviews with leaders and players in the academy, complemented by observations and a document analysis. The results showed an ATDE having a holistic view on the players as whole human beings with a focus on long--‐ term development and a high amount of individualized training. The findings support earlier research on talent development, career development and talent development environments.
