In youth sport, the word talent is everywhere. We overuse it and we misuse it. This is a treacherous trap. When we fall into the talent trap, we give immense value to an inconsistent and unreliable predictor of success. We confuse people with conflicting ideas, and we enable a... misdirected, biased process to determine who should and shouldn't be supported. This has a damaging ripple effect on the perceptions, identity, motivations and expectations of young athletes, and those around them. This book exposes common everyday actions that seem harmless, but which are wreaking havoc. Whether you are a parent or coach, programme manager or CEO, it will shed light on how we can all do things differently and guide you to lead change. To thrive in youth sport and give young people the best chance of ongoing success into adulthood, we must free ourselves from the talent trap and re-focus on the things that really matter.
