PROLead is a collaborative partnership project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and coordinated by EU Athletes, with German Sport University Cologne and 8 player
associations from different countries and sports (GPA, RPI, PPF, FNASS, UBE, TCA, AJFS, AJJV) as partners. Focusing on the topic of dual careers of athletes, the aim of the project was to enhance leadership skills of athletes, as well as volunteers and staff of player associations, by designing and implementing leadership courses at the European and national level.
After the Dissemination Conference which was an opportunity to share good practices and results of the three years of cooperation, the project is now coming to the conclusion at the end of the year. Experiences gathered during different stages of the project are presented in the final intellectual output How to Set Up a Leadership Course? Practical Guide for Player Associations. Building on the research phase, the design and implementation of both European and National Leadership Courses, as well as the evaluation and participant’s feedback, the Guide offers player associations or other stakeholders guidance and advice related to leadership education.
