The study was about a non normative within-career transition in sport: Handball players’ move from their current to an alternative team. Eighty male handball players were presented with scenarios that contained five pieces of information about current satisfaction with the present team, attractiveness of the alternative team (better springboard for future career than the current team, better wages), perceived probability of being hired, and presence of a network of friends. Although all the factors were taken into account for judging the intent to move in each situation, the springboard and localization-wage factors impacted more than the other factors.
