Stambulova, Natalia B | Ryba, Tatiana V | Henriksen, Kristoffer

This paper is a comprehensive update of the International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP) position stand on career development and transitions of athletes issued a decade ago (Stambulova, Alfermann, Statler, & Côté, 2009, ISSP position stand: career development and transitions of athletes. International journal of sport and exercise psychology, 7, 395–412.). During the last decade, sport psychology career scholars worked on structuring the athlete career knowledge and consolidating it into the athlete career (sport psychology) discourse (ACD). The aims of this paper are to: (1) update the decade-long evolution and describe the current structure of the ACD, (2) introduce recent trends in career development and transition research, (3) discuss emerging trends in career assistance, and (4) summarise in a set of postulates the current status and future challenges of the ACD. The article also includes the Olympic Games transition.
