Abstract [en]

This study of Sweden’s 24 football districts analyses whether contextual factors

(number of players, number of elite teams, and number of elite players on each

district team) influence the district teams’ relative age effect (RAE) and the way

in which contextual factors and RAE correlate with the U15 teams’ competitive

success. The analysis is based on register data on district players (4,516 girls

and 4,501 boys, all 15 years old) who attended an annual elite football camp:

birthdate, the total number of players aged 15, club membership, senior elite

clubs, proportion of elite players on the district teams, and match outcomes.

Based on the birthdates of the players born between 2001 and 2012, a relative

age index was constructed for each district. The results showed a relative age

effect (RAE) for the selected district players (boys and girls) compared to the

general 15-year-old football population; however, birthdate only affected the

competitive success of the boys’ district teams. The analysis points out that

contextual factors such as the number of football players and the presence of elite

clubs are important to consider in order to understand how RAE is produced

and its relationship to the success of winning matches for boys’ district teams.

Abstract [en]

 The purpose of this article is to explore whether context and coaching cultures influence coaches’ practical experience and their unarticulated and embodied knowledge, and thus their different ways of seeing and defining talent. Using a cultural sociological perspective, we challenge the commonly held assumption that talent identification is, or can be made into, a rational and objective process. Our interpretations and analyses are based upon interviews with 15 soccer coaches in four districts within the Swedish Football Association’s talent organization program. The results imply that coaches’ talent identification is guided by what feels “right in the heart and stomach”; but what feels right is greatly influenced by their experience of previous identifications, interpretations of what elite soccer entails, and the coaching culture in which they find themselves.

Abstract [en]

In the fields of both education and sport, the possession of capital and habitus influences an individual’s lifestyles and choices, which in turn affects the social selection within these fields. In this article, we will study the Swedish system of school sports as an overlap between the fields of education and sport, and thus viewed as a double dominated field. From a cultural sociological perspective, the purpose of this article is to analyse and explain how the organisational conditions and pupils’ social characteristics interact with upper secondary pupils’ choices of different school sports programmes in Sweden. Based on registry data on secondary school sports pupils, the results show that the supply of school sports requires specific forms of social dispositions that have an impact on which categories of pupils choose to participate. Among the students participating in school sports, there is a higher proportion of pupils who: are of Swedish origin (p < 0.05), are boys (p < 0.05), attend academic study programmes (p < 0.05), and have parents with high educational capital (p < 0.05). Furthermore, based on 677 pupils’ questionnaire responses, collected through two studies on school sports in Sweden, the results show that the choice between different types of school sports programmes is related to the intersection between pupils’ sex and possession of educational and sporting capital. One important conclusion is that the overlap between the fields of education and sports exacerbates gender and class biases, and that the supply of school sports in Sweden appeals to a narrow or rather specific taste for sport and education, particularly favouring boys with highly educated parents and an interest in team sports.

Abstract [en]

In this chapter we analyze the pathways through which school choice leads to segregation in the multicultural setting of Malmö, Sweden and in relation to an elite-oriented program, the natural science program. As a result of school choice reforms this program has grown rapidly in recent years, as has the number of students with an immigrant background attending it. In this chapter we examine whether the latter is to be interpreted as a sign of increased integration, or whether segregation persists within the program; that is, whether these high-performing students who have chosen the same elite program still end up in different schools, depending on their social and ethnic background. Thereafter we examine the extent to which any segregation that is indeed found can be explained by students’ “free” choices, and the extent to which these choices are restricted by previous school performance. We use the concepts of structural and symbolic boundaries and examine the importance of each, using a combination of register and survey data. Both structural and symbolic boundaries are found to restrict students’ school choices in a way that, on the municipality level, creates segregation. Roughly half of the school choices found with regard to immigrant status can be attributed to differences in grades. But we find that, in addition, the most attractive schools sustain a symbolic boundary, based on Swedishness and whiteness and intertwined with a performance culture, which makes these schools less accessible to students with an immigrant background. One conclusion, therefore, is that school segregation is unlikely to be solved within the present school system; at least not until the symbolic boundaries now influencing school choice are “blurred” or dissolved.

Abstract [sv]

När coacher inom Svenska fotbollförbundets distriktslagsverksamhet identifierar talang handlar det i låg grad om en objektiv och rationell bedömning av spelarna. Istället är det magkänslan som i hög grad avgör vilka spelare som betraktas vara svensk fotbolls framtid.
