Abstract: Athletes strive to reach expert performance in sport. However, evidence has shown that the talent development (TD) environmental factors significantly influence elite performance. This review study aimed to identify and classify the environmental factors that are essential for effective TD in sport. A number of TD environmental factors (e.g., media coverage, sport participation rate, birthplace, long-term development, and quality preparation) emerged from the literature. They were then grouped into three categories: milieu, individuals, and provisions. Implications for the practical practice and future research regarding effective TD were provided.
