With Young Athletes, the Sportunion is launching an Austria-wide program to specifically support competitive athletes between the ages of 12 and 15. The program serves as a supplement to the sport-specific club and association training and is aimed not only at athletes but also at coaches and club officials from SPORTUNION clubs as well as parents and the wider athlete environment.
As SPORTUNION’s first standardized youth competitive sports program, Young Athletes is intended to strengthen healthy, sustainable and performance-oriented competitive sports in clubs and take the first basic steps towards sustainably reducing the drop out rate of athletes, especially in the 12-15 year old age group. Likewise, all recipients should be motivated for life to do sport and exercise or to take on other functions in the sports system.
To register for the program and the kick-off event as well as for further information, please contact your program coordinator in the regional association. Registration for 2024 is now possible with your program coordinator!
