Abstract [en]

Many youngsters dreams about becoming a professional football player and to play in front of thousands of supporters screaming your name. You should never stop someone’s dream, but many youngsters misjudge the amount of time a footballer must do on the football pitch to fulfill the journey of becoming a professional football player. The investment in football for youngsters begins in high school, where youngsters can combine studies with football. The only thing high school students thinks about are the next training or game and sooner or later the high school student will lose his or her identity to football and football will always go first and studies comes in second hand. Sadly, there aren’t many that will become fulltime footballers and when they will have it confirmed, many students don’t know what to do. The reason why they don’t know what to is because of football and the students only think about football for many years and they have lost their identities to football. They are far behind in studies which can lead to long-term unemployment and bad mental health. The meaning of this study is to find about how high school students experienced the combination between football and studies during high school. I chose to do a qualitive study, where I had interviews with a total of 6 persons and the distribution between gender was equal. My respondents were former football high school students who now studies on university and they combined football with studies during high school. My main results are that my respondents confirm that you focus a lot on football and not on school. Considering these coaches have a big part on the pressure it is on young football players on high level during high school. Furthermore, high school students don’t think about future without football if the parents don’t keep reminds them about it. All my participants confirmed the importance of support from parents and coaches for their wellbeing. If my students had the possibility to reject the football programme the majority would have rejected the football high school. All my participants could confirm that it was hard to define yourself without in your life. My conclusion is that high school students who give everything football will lose their identity to football. Even football communities have their part in this, football federations don’t help the individuals that will make it and only helps the talents who probably will be professional football players. This will lead to long-term unemployment and bad mental health.
