Abstract [en]

The purpose of this bachelor essay was to analyze two Swedish district football

associations and how the responsible coaches of the elite youth development

teams identify and select talent. Key questions in the thesis were how the

coaches described their leadership and their own part in the team, how the

coaches identify talent, how they work with the selection process and their

opinions about the elite youth development team structure. The study was

based on 7 semi-structured interviews. The interviews showed differences

between the district football associations but also many similarities in how they

selected the team during the talent identification process. All coaches were

involved in the selection process but the way they talked about developing elite

players varied. One interesting result in the study was that the coaches’ way of

describing talent revolved a lot around non-football related attributes such as

character and attitude.
