The validity of the questionnaire was verified by university professors and specialists in swimming, diving and water polo fields and its reliability by calculating the Cronbach alpha at the acceptable level of the report (0/94 = α). The internal consistency of Cronbach's alpha coefficients was measured for all three factors, which in all parts was above 0.80. In this study, descriptive statistics were used to analyze the information and determine the demographic status of the participants. To determine whether there are any significant differences between the status quo and the desired situation, a t-test single-sample test In order to prioritize different indices in the process of talent identification, Friedman's nonparametric test was used at the significant level of α = 0.05.
Results: The results of the research showed that there is a significant difference between the current status of managerial and implementation factors, facilities, and manpower with the desired status.
