Abstract

The purpose of this scoping review was to examine the potential 27 sociological predictors for identifying talent in junior-elite football. Four 28 academic databases were searched using a systematic search strategy and 29 nine eligibility criteria were applied to ensure only relevant studies were 30 included in the review. A total of 1,107 potential studies were returned for 31 the review, however 1,083 did not meet the eligibility criteria and a further 32 12 articles were excluded after further screening. Two follow up searches 33 yielded one additional article for inclusion. In total, 13 articles were 34 included in the final scoping review. These studies aligned to four 35 potential sociological predictors of talent in football: 1) hours in practice; 36 2) coach-child interaction; 3) parental support; and 4) education. Each 37 potential predictor is examined in detail with key findings summarised 38 before impact for practice and future research direction is proposed.
