Abstract [en]

This study was made in collaboration with the Sport Association of Norrbotten and the purpose of this study were to further explore the consequenses of the talent development programmes taking place in Sweden. We analyzed the opinions of those who had experience of development programes and subsequently what this provides for their future interest in football. It is well known that a lot of people drop out of organized sport during their youth and one of the objectives of this study was to investigate the extent to which those who participated in talent development programs continues or drop out of football. The data in this study was recovered through a web-based survey with representatives from both sexes. 86 people answered all of whom had participated in the Swedish Football Association camp called Halmstadlägret. The birth date among the participants were examined and this study illuminates that relative age effect had a strong connection among the boys and to some degree among the girls. The result of this study showed that there are several different reasons why people choose to continue or to quit playing football, though a common reason for quit playing football were resettling in a different town for studies. There were some difference between the genders regarding how long they stayed in football and at what level they played organized football. In general, the participants of Halmstadlägret and distriktslaget felt invigorative with their experience which was one of the main goals for the talent development program. There are still room for improvement regarding keeping the participants involved in football.
