The “Young Talents” project supports young athletes who are on their way to enter the ski high school in Stams, Tyrol. The support is addressed to athletes in the disciplines of ski jumping, Nordic combined and biathlon. The aim of the project is to optimally prepare the talents for the life of a top athlete with all its facets. The most important components are coaching, personality development and the opportunity to exchange experiences with world-class athletes. We also try to relieve the parents as much as possible. Often the costs for the private school and the expensive FIS-compliant competition equipment represent an additional burden.
