Abstract [en]

Identifying   good   talent   development   environments   in   sports   has   earlier   been   subjective   or quantified   into   the   number   of   produced   athletes,   revealing   nothing   or   little   of   how   talent development  environments  may  be  improved.  This  study  aimed  to  investigate  how  talent development    environmental    factors    predict;    achievement    goal    styles,    self‐determination motivational styles, the fulfilment of the basic need of competence, and fear of failure. 144 pupils from   Swedish   national   sport   educations   answered   self‐report   questionnaires.   Long‐term development   focus   positively   predicted   mastery‐   and   performance‐approach   styles,   and competence, while support network negatively predicted fear of failure. However, due to lacking questionnaire reliability, this study emphasizes that further research must be done so that better talent development environmental models may be created.
