IFSC LAUNCHES ATHLETES’ CAREER TRANSITION PROGRAMME
The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) is proud to present the IFSC Athletes’ Career Transition Programme, launching today with its first boot camp, and already confirmed for a second one.
The Programme will comprise a series of interactive, virtual courses hosted by Gabriela Mueller Mendoza – a professional speaker, executive communication coach, author, and professional trainer with a Latin-Swiss style.
Both active and retired athletes have been invited to participate. Courses will be free.
The course will help the participants in gaining valuable experience in different areas and skills, such as self-awareness, networking and relationships, transfer of skills from sports into other fields, entrepreneurship and double professional paths, and more.
“We are immensely proud to have launched the Programme,” said IFSC Research & Development Director Silvia Verdolini. “This is only one of many development projects we have been working on in the last few months, since the creation of the IFSC Research & Development Department.
The Athletes’ Career Transition Programme, once again, puts our athletes at the top of our priority list. And it is fantastic to see how they have responded to the invitation, fully booking the first two boot camps in just a couple of hours.”
The first boot camp is scheduled for today, 24 October, from 2:00 to 4:30 PM (UTC+2:00). The date of the second one will be announced in due time.
The list of participants to the first boot camp includes Tokyo 2020 Olympians Petra Klingler of Switzerland and Alannah Yip of Canada, IFSC World Cup medallist Erik Noya Cardona of Spain, and IFSC Paraclimbing World Cup medallist Tim Schaffrina of Germany.
