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 study is part of the Erasmus+ project “Ecology of dual career (DC) – exploring dual career development environments across Europe”. 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 ten 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) about their perceptions of the environment, key relationships, philosophy and support. Observation of real life events (e.g., meetings, training sessions) including informal talks to 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. To briefly sum up, the structure of the environment was characterized by a strong regional sports culture and collaboration between stakeholders with geographical and relational proximity, strong DC coordination, and the coach-athlete relationship as the key relationship for DC support. The central DC processes were a university regulation providing the student-athletes with the right to flexible studies, integrated DC planning between the coach and 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.
