Next steps of the European Network of Sport Schools (ENOSS)

2019 marked the starting point for the European Network of Sport Schools (ENOSS), initiated by the SLZB & TW1N, with the first ever ENOSS Conference being held in the Olympic Stadium of Berlin. 2021 will see the network make its next steps.

The ENOSS Conference 2019 united professionals from 16 European countries, spanning school managers, teachers, sport coaches, psychologists, counsellors, policy-makers, and delegates from the European Commission. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organisation of a conference in 2020 turned out not to be feasible.

Now, with the conditions slowly improving, ENOSS is committed to reinforce its efforts to interconnect sport schools and talent support models in Europe. In this regard, TW1N is delighted to announce the ENOSS Conference 2021.

Back on Track : New Ways

Without a doubt: The last 16 months have been a huge challenge. This counts for both talented athletes and practitioners. In the crisis, sport schools were asked to come up with new strategies to navigate their systems through wild waters. The ENOSS Conference 2021 on 1-2 December will therefore aim to help sport schools benefit from sharing the multifaceted innovation that has been created across European sport schools in, and thanks to this difficult period. "Back on Track : New Ways" is the corresponding theme of the conference.

Given the variables accompanying the COVID-19 pandemic, the ENOSS Conference 2021 will take place online and be free of charge, co-hosted by the Sportlycée Luxembourg & TW1N. Since their EU Presidency in 2015, Luxembourg has made impressive steps forward in their structural development of athletes support services, strategically supported by TW1N.

"TW1N has played a pivotal role in the implementation of dual career in Luxembourg. Through the consultation on the strategic planning of the national scheme and transfer of key expertise to our dual career support providers, we have been able to extend and enhance our services to athletes."

Romain Schneider, Minister of Sports 2009-2018, Luxembourg

As a fundamental puzzle piece of the Luxembourgish dual career system, the Sportlycée is a public sport school with the mission to help talented athletes combine sport and education on secondary level. The national programme is run in cooperation with sport federations and the Luxembourgian government.

More details of the ENOSS Conference 2021 and the new ENOSS website will be published in the next weeks.

Shaping sport-school environments in Luxembourg

Fueled by its EU Presidency which put Dual Careers on its sport agenda, Luxembourg has made impressive steps forward in their structural development of athlete support services. Since 2016, TW1N Founder & CEO Wolfgang Stockinger serves as an external consultant of this national implementation process.

As a most important puzzle piece of the Luxembourgish dual career system, the Sportlycée Luxembourg is a public sport school with the mission to help talented athletes to combine sport and education on secondary school level. The national programme is run in cooperation with sport federations and the Federal Ministry of Sport.

Traditionally, the school has a strong ambition to continuously innovate its dual career environment. Bringing in European expertise is seen as a key factor for further development within the institution. In this context, TW1N was delighted to advise the first stage of the project "Projet d’établissement - Building block for a successful dual career". In an in-house workshop, we accompanied the school's experts in the areas of management, teaching, sport psychology and counselling to create effective communication strategies to convey the project to the talented athletes and their entourage, spanning parents, sport coaches and teachers.
