Abstract [en]

Athlete career research in sport psychology has evolved dramatically during the last decade, with several new trends emerging and young scholars across the world interested in and contributing to its development. This symposium brings together three young scholars from different countries (who are approaching the end of their doctoral project or just recently completed the degree) and their research mentors with the twofold purpose: (a) to introduce several recent trends in athlete career research through presentations of the young scholars, and (b) to discuss the projects and professional development of young researchers through the mentors’ panel. The organizer will begin with a brief overview of the recent and innovative trends in the athlete career topic (e.g., those derived from the cultural praxis of athletes’ careers paradigm; Stambulova & Ryba, 2013) and the content of the symposium. Following this, the first presenter will share results of a qualitative study aimed at investigating student-athlete and staff members’ perspectives of the challenges and support provided to British dual career athletes in their transition to university. The second presenter will share the experiences of creating an empirical career model of Swedish handball players based on the holistic athletic career model (Wylleman, Reints, & De Knop, 2013) and in-depth interviews with the players. The third presenter will challenge the existing career development models in terms of their one-sided interpretation of athletic career termination by approaching this issue from the existential and narrative psychology perspectives. The symposium will be concluded by a mentors’ panel discussing the young scholars’ projects, their mentorship experiences, and strategies to establish and maintain cross-generation professional links to ensure sustainable development of the athlete career topic in future.
