Building on the results of the DC4SKI project, ESKI has a double aim of promoting coaches’ education and skills development and to create dual careers opportunities for Alpine ski racers – with special focus on higher ed.
ESKI brings together 7 institutions (ski race clubs, ski federations and universities) from 6 different countries (Italy, Bulgaria, Latvia, Greece, Ireland plus the United States) which together will:
- Innovate in Alpine ski training, create education and skills development opportunities for Alpine ski coaches, elaborate innovative pedagogical tools and best practices for Alpine ski training, which will allow to trade quantity (on snow) with quality (on and off-snow).
- Make available such innovative pedagogical tools freely available
- Create a European Alpine Ski Coaches’ Clinic and a European Network of Alpine Ski Coaches
- Create Dual Careers opportunities for European Alpine ski racers, by creating a Network of European Ski High Schools and a European Circuit of Mountain Universities, as well as by developing Higher Educations degrees specific for mountain professionals.
