This publication presents the results of a survey focusing on finding the structure of giftedness with ice-hockey players aged 12. The agglomerative criterion of the "skill to play ice-hockey" was broken down into nine variables based on expert opinion, which are crucial for assessing the extent of giftedness, to which three other variables, considered important for determining the extent of giftedness in technical literature, were added. The criterion and individual variables were quantified on a specific seven-point scale. Based on the factor analysis results and the ensuing regress analysis of the model of the factor structure with a criterion, the author determined the hierarchy of latent factors influencing the ice-hockey giftedness of the player.
