Abstract Several South African studies were conducted during the past twelve years to as part of a research project on Talent Identification and Development. Hundreds of elite youth rugby players, within the age range 10 to 19 years old, were tested on several anthropometric, physical and motor abilities, game specific skills, and injury epidemiology.
Show all documents Are youth sport talent identification and development systems necessary and healthy? Globally, talent identification and development systems TIDS have proliferated . Given their increasing pro- fessionalism and intensity, TIDS are resource-intensive requiring substantial financial investment. To recover these costs, TIDS are expected to be effective in convert- ing youth athletes into medal winning or saleable assets within adult sports . Recently, TIDS across a range of sports have been questioned in the research literature for their effectiveness [3, 4] and healthiness e. The combination of these factors and robust evidence base that exists surrounding the influence of maturation mitigates the influence of this study.
Metrics details. Talent identification and development systems TIDS are commonly used in professional sport to convert youth athletes into sporting stars of the future. In this short communication, we suggest that the key issues associated with TIDS are not due to their overall concept, but with how they are designed and implemented. It is recommended that researchers and practitioners determine the worth and value of TIDS by also evaluating the positive health of the athlete rather than solely focusing on performance outcomes.
I review research on psychological characteristics and sports performance and examine the literature on talent identification with particular reference to soccer to derive implications for the use of psychological variables in the talent identification and development process. Although the many cross-sectional studies of psychological characteristics and performance in all football codes conducted over the last 30 years have revealed no clear patterns, studies of both general inventories and specific variables are still being conducted. Reports on talent identification in all codes have increased in recent years, but most are descriptive in nature. In this review, I suggest that research on systematic expert observation has potential as a practical approach, but more studies of this type are needed. Considering the examination of specific psychological variables, only a solitary investigation of creativity in adolescents has shown promise.
