Abstract: 
Guided by Deci and Ryan’s (2000) self-determination theory, this survey study aimed to
examine the effects of the talent development environmental factors on athlete burnout.
Talented adolescent athletes (N = 691) filled out a survey form measuring the talent
development environmental factors, needs satisfaction, and burnout. The findings showed
that three talent environmental factors (i.e., long-term development focus, holistic quality
preparation, and communication) were negative predictors of burnout via needs satisfaction.
It was concluded that the three talent development environmental factors may be important
for facilitating athletes’ needs satisfaction and preventing burnout.
