Detailed Description+

The test set SFTEAM Success Factors Teamsport assesses ability and personality dimensions relevant to various types of team sport.

The test set is therefore very useful for selecting players for team sports such as football, basketball, hockey or handball and is the ideal complement to tests that assess abilities specific to particular sports.

An ideal profile provides a detailed structure pattern for the player’s relevant characteristics. Whether a respondent fits the target profile can be calculated and displayed in comparison to other players in the form of a ranking.

The selection of dimensions took place in two stages. First, relevant ability and personality dimensions that can help to distinguish between players in different ability classes were identified on the basis of theoretical considerations. In this case these dimensions are the individual’s attention, cognitive abilities, reaction behavior, visual functions and personality. The most suitable test for assessing each dimension was then selected. In a second step, these tests were used in a validation study at Vienna University. This involved administering a test battery to 225 players in various positions, such as strikers, midfield players and goalkeepers. On the basis of this study, ideal profiles for the players’ personality and skills were defined.
