Over the last 11 months EU Athletes has successfully conducted a 2nd project, under the EU budget line” preparatory actions in the field of sport”. The PDM guide is the result of a fruitful collaboration between EU Athletes members.
Dual career of athletes has always been a high priority on the agenda of EU Athletes. The importance and the quality of the work of his members in this field, has always been highlighted on various occasions (EU Sport Forum, EU Expert Group).
The Budget lines available under the “Preparatory actions in the field of sport” helped EU athletes to take a step further in this direction by allowing his members to engage in a job shadowing experience at the EU level to improve their governance and the quality of services provided to their members.
This project gave them a unique opportunity to learn from other and to gain new knowledge in a field continuously changing.
Based on the experience of his members, EU Athletes is publishing today the 1st ever PDM guide, to help small associations to improve their support of players on dual career. This booklet is presenting innovative ideas and a different approach on elite athletes transition.
