Identification and Development of Talent – Coach Considerations

Reflecting on their discussion in the previous podcast, Kevin Till and Chris Chapman consider what talent identification can look like for a coach.

Talent identification across a pathway is about preparing athletes for their long-term development – where are they likely to go in the sport over the next 10 or 15 years? Kevin talks through the performance model, which looks to understand the developmental components that athletes need to be successful, and can be used by coaches to develop a holistic approach to their groups.
