Conditions of Children’s Talent Development in Sport is a comprehensive study of sport’s impact on childhood skill acquisition. The text takes multiple factors into account, including activities in which children participate during their development, and personal and social variables that affect their growth. Authorities in the fields of sport psychology and motor development and learning share their insights in each chapter, guaranteeing a comprehensive exploration of children’s talent development through sport.

The book is structured around the fourth stage of talent development research, which takes into account not only practice activities, but also the importance of play and the sampling of various sports throughout childhood. This stage considers psychosocial influences as well as training aspects.

Chapters cover a variety of topics, such as implicit motor learning, self-efficacy, perfectionism’s impact on emerging talent in youth, and the influence of coaches, peers, and family members.
