Building commitment in a sports class

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskning

The literature has traditionally considered commitment as an individual characteristic or condition of the individual. This means that one is inclined to think that it is those who have commitment who have the opportunity to become excellent performers within their sport. But what if commitment is not something you have, or are, but something you do, and commitment is not an individual property but a relationship in which athletes relate to talent developers to become talents. If that is so talent development may not be as much about spotting and selecting as about forging relationships and building commitment.
