Abstract [en]

This presentation shares a case study of a dual career development environment (DCDE) at a Swedish university based on the holistic ecological approach (Henriksen & Stambulova, 2017). The goal of the study was to explore the DCDE’s structure, DC processes, and philosophy of the DC support team. Data were collected through 10 semi-structured interviews (with eight university and sports staff members and two collaborative partners) and two focus groups (with four student-athletes, and four coaches). Participants were asked about their perceptions of the environment, key relationships, philosophy, and support. Observation of real-life events (e.g. meetings, training sessions), informal talks with 13 student-athletes and 21 staff members and stakeholders during eight full days, and analysis of relevant documents (e.g. webpage) provided additional insights into the environment. Results highlighted that the structure of the environment was characterized by a strong regional sports culture and collaboration between stakeholders with geographical and relational proximity and strong DC coordination. The coach-athlete relationship was the key relationship for DC support. The central DC processes were university regulations providing the student-athletes with the right to study flexibly, integrated DC planning between the coach and the athlete, and access to expert support. The philosophy of the DC support team was characterized by treating the student-athletes as "whole persons" and responsible grown-ups, meaning that no support was provided if the student-athletes did not request it. Implications of the approach taken by this DCDE are outlined at the conclusion of this presentation.
