The AFTERMATCH project is an action aimed at contributing to the realization of one of the priorities of the EU Guidelines on Dual Career of Athletes, by focusing on “transversal skills” acquired during the practices of high level sport activities by athletes to be exploited towards 3 different targets: a) young athletes, by preparing them to a second career before ending their sport performances; b) with ex-athletes, by making them discover how the transversal skills acquired during sport performing can be used in a creative way in the labour market; c) with sportive associations / sport trainers, in order to raise their awareness about being not only “trainers” but also “educators” for young athletes, with the task of preparing them for a second alternative career.
