Target groups and project final beneficiaries are talented young athletes (15-25 years old): more interested in sport and winning rather than building a smooth transition for the end of their sport career, sports clubs and associations that lack awareness, information, education regarding dual career, as well as trainers and coaches who put pressure for high results and disregarding the end-of-career issues. The programme is also for parents who ask for high level performance from their children and sometimes causing their dropout.
