Event description

Description

We are delighted to invite you to the final presentation of the STICK project (funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Sport framework) on November 19 2019 in Brussels.

For ‘dual career’ athletes, who combine sports at the highest level with a university education, going on an Erasmus exchange can be challenging. The STICK project has been working on the design of an Academic/Sport Mobility Programme within Erasmus with the aim of facilitating such a mobility experience for hockey players who compete on a national level.

Our consortium consists of five European universities (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, University of Antwerp, Nottingham Trent University, Dublin City University and Erasmus Rotterdam University) and five European Hockey clubs (Atlètic Terrassa Hockey Club, Dragons Hockey Club, Beeston Hockey Club, Pembroke Wanderers and H.C. Rotterdam).

The aim of the 2-year pilot project is to allow top hockey players to go on an Erasmus exchange while continuing to play their sport at the highest level. Reconciling the demands of the universities with those of the athletes and their clubs was one of the challenges of our project.

Please join us for the presentation of the results of STICK, including recommendations on how to use our experience to help dual career athletes from other sports. We feel that the results are relevant for stakeholders from universities, sport federations, athlete associations and anyone interested in the implementation of the mobility programme that was designed.
