Q: How is the Talents of Tomorrow software different from others?
A: The software is specifically made for physical development of the growing athlete. Talent development is traditionally separated into several areas, such as technical, mental, social, and physical. The Talents of Tomorrow software ensures that the physical aspect can be done to utmost excellence, developing an athlete from early childhood to adult competitiveness.

Q: Can I have my own tests and measurements in the system?
A: Yes, it is possible to record and track whichever tests and parameters you wish.

Q: Is the software available in my language?
A: Currently, the software is in English. However, we plan to translate it to the languages of clubs we work with.

Q: What database is used for comparison of talents?
A: Talents of Tomorrow’s own database is used. Everything is aggregated and anonymous, so clubs remain unknown to other clubs. However, you will always know the level of leagues that goes into the comparison, so you can strive for the highest performance.

Q: How can I use the software with my current data?
A: We will help you transfer a copy of your data to the system. Our team has years of experience with data handling, and we commit to keep it safe and private.

Q: Are there other focus areas than biological age in the software?
A: Yes, the overall focus is to maximise athletic potential. Biological age is just a very important part of achieving this with young athletes. Therefore, it is possible to analyse talents through the scope of biological age and without it.

Practicalities

Q: Is it possible to try the software before moving further?
A: Yes, we will send you a demo version to try.

Q: Where is Talents of Tomorrow located? Can we meet?
A: We are located in Copenhagen, Denmark. We are very flexible in terms of meeting. If you are located outside of Denmark, a good way to get to know each other is through phone, skype, or similar. Afterwards, we are always happy to visit for a face-to-face meeting.

Q: Who are the team behind Talents of Tomorrow?
A: We are a good mix of people with backgrounds in data analysis, programming, and sports and exercise science. Together, we enjoy developing high quality solutions, as well as helping others perform at their best.

Science

Q: What is the biological age, which is used in the software?
A: The biological age is an indicator of where a person is in their maturational development in the years between childhood and being a fully grown adult. In contrast, chronological age is only determined by the time that has passed since a person was born.

Q: How is biological age calculated?
A: The biological age is calculated by using and converting scientifically established growth and maturity equations. Talents of Tomorrow primarily use PHV, established by Mirwald et al., or Khamis-Roche height prediction. This depends on the preferences of the individual club.

Q: Why is biological age important in developing youth athletes?
A: Biological age is important because several studies have shown that maturity differences have a major impact on team selection, physical performance, and training objectives. Read more about the impact of maturity differences.

Q: What if two athletes both have a biological age of 14, but one is chronologically 15 and the other is 13?
A: The chronological age gap is indeed large, but physically these two athletes will be more similar to each other than to their chronological peers. Therefore, it is better to compare these two when it comes to physical development.
