A brief history of ENOSS

A brief history of ENOSS

In the EU, the number of athletes in need of dual career support services adds up to more than 120.000 in every Olympic cycle.1 Within competitive systems, European sport schools play a crucial role in the development of human talent.

Their quality of services provided in cooperation with policy makers and sport bodies is of vital importance for sustainable pathways of aspiring athletes, in amateur as well as in professional sports. Despite the history of sport schools in the EU, a specific network between these schools on European level did not exist for a long time. Enter: ENOSS.

2019 marked the starting point of the European Network of Sport Schools, with the first ENOSS Conference #enoss2019, entitled “The Next Step” and being held in the SLZB and Olympic Stadium of Berlin. The conference united professionals from 16 European countries, spanning school managers, teachers, sport coaches, psychologists, counsellors, policy-makers, and delegates from the European Commission.

With the COVID-19 conditions slowly improving, ENOSS reinforced its efforts in 2021 to further unlock the European dimension of sport schools: “Back on Track : New Ways” – The second ENOSS Conference #enoss2021 took place virtually, bringing together presenters from 3 continents and participants from 30 different countries across the globe.
