"Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones" - Shannon L. Alder


This program is about 10 european partners from various backgrounds teaming up to put together an inspiring leadership program for those youth leaders who are ready to make a next step toward a more senior function in the national or international sports world.


of the project
The desire is to tailor a comprehensive curriculum which will cover the multi functional sector of sports administration and governance. The result will be an european sport leadership training covering multiple days over a longer period where formal learning with on-the-job learning experiences will be combined.
