A dual career comes with a series of simultaneous transitions and developments happening on athletic, educational, psychological or psycho-social level. For athletes, it takes a great amount of management, self-regulation, career planning and social skills to be able to stay on this ambitious road and keep direction. To foster sustainable pathways of handball talents across Europe and to help these young players grow on and off the court, the European Handball Federation (EHF) and TW1N have created the international programme “RESPECT YOUR TALENT”.
RESPECT YOUR TALENT aims to support the personal development of European aspiring handball players. TW1N takes pride in having designed the methodical and dedactical concept of the project. In an innovative learning approach, the world’s best handball players act as teachers of young athletes.
RESPECT YOUR TALENT Summer Tour 2019
Summer 2019 will see our RESPECT YOUR TALENT Kick Off Events all over Europe. The EHF and TW1N are honoured to have won world-class handball players such as Stine Oftedal (Norway), Ana Gros (Slovenia), Anja Althaus (Germany), Johanna Ahlm (Sweden) or Nerea Pena (Spain) as RESPECT YOUR TALENT ambassadors. These high-level role models will lead TW1N-designed-workshops alongside 6 European tournaments to encourage young talents to take on responsibility for their own careers, both from a personal and an athletic point of view. In the next months, RESPECT YOUR TALENT will add further activities to its programme.
