The European Athlete as Student (EAS) network has been founded in 2004 with support of EU Commission during The European Year of Education Through Sport (EYES) It is for universities, sports schools and other educational establishments interested in high performance sport as well as sports clubs and federations which are willing to help their athletes in their studies. The main aim of the EAS -network is to support European athletes in combining high performance sport and education.
The main aim is to support European athletes in combining high performance sport and education.Supporting the “dual career” means that the EAS-Network strives to optimise the training conditions for athlete/students but also that their future gets secured by making it possible for them to get an education or vocational training, so that they have a safe platform to start from when their sports career is over. Do you belong to one of all those institutions which want to promote the “dual career” by supporting the combination of high performance sport and education/vocational training? Please contact the EAS-Coordinator or one of the members of the EAS-Executive committee.
This leaflet has recently been created as a promotional tool in generating further awareness of EAS. Members are able to use the leaflet in events which relate to Dual Career. Enclosed in this document you will find the information provided on this page along with material regarding:
