Im Zentrum des vorliegenden Beitrags stehen die Passungsverhältnisse zwischen den Anforderungen einer sportprofilierten Gesamtschule und den subjektiven Bildungsgangkonstruktionen von Sportklassenschülern/innen. Besonderes Augenmerk liegt auf der Passungsarbeit, die diese dazu herausfordert, zu einer subjektiv tragfähigen Vermittlung zwischen den eigenen Entwicklungswünschen und den institutionellen Anforderungen zu gelangen. In einem rekonstruktiv-fallanalytisch angelegten Forschungsprogramm erfolgte die empirische Rekonstruktion dieser Auseinandersetzungsprozesse. Es zeigt sich, dass das 'Talentsein' kaum als standardisierter Ablauf von Karrierestationen zu verstehen ist, sondern vielmehr als Entwicklungsaufgabe, die Potenziale zur Reproduktion aber auch zur Transformation bestehender Selbst- und Weltverständnisse bereithält. This paper examines the relationship between the educational requirements of a sports-oriented school and students' subjective constructs of the school's curriculum and orientation. We focus on the 'adjustment work' these students engage in, which can be conceptualized as a demand that they need to process: By adjusting their own developmental objectives to the demands placed on them by the educational institution, they arrive at a subjectively acceptable form of compromise. Our empirical case study of these processes is based on reconstructive biographical interviews with student athletes. The study shows that 'being talented' cannot be described accurately as a standardized sequence of career stages, but rather as a developmental task with the potential for reproduction but also for transformation of existing ideas about oneself and the world.
