Development of promising young athletes

See our photo galleries

Sport for Life also assists in the detection, support and development of promising young athletes. The foundation contributes to their sportive and personal development by giving them access to a wealth of resources.

The youths benefit from the sport champions’ experience as well as from well known experts, who provide advice and recommendations whilst transmitting their values. This prepares the young athletes to become mature and blossoming athletes.

Following the example of our ambassador Amélie Mauresmo, the French golfer Raphael Jacquelin was also immediately attracted by the vision and the mission of the foundation. He has accepted to become the ambassador for the golf programme. Alexia Dechaume-Balleret, ex tennis player ranked 46 WTP and ex coach of Amélie Mauresmo has taken the role of tennis consultant for the programme.

Pauline Parmentier (currently WTA 80 / highest ranking: WTA 40 in 2008 / 2 WTA titles) is also involved in Sport for Life's coaching program as a Sports Advisor to share her experience with young people. Xavier Moreau, Amélie Mauresmo's former physical trainer who works today notably with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, is also part of the project. Training sessions are organised every year to promote the experience sharing with the young athletes and their trainers.

For each youth supported by the foundation, personal goals are established every year. During the year, the foundation will continue support and coaching to ensure that goals are met.

As of today, seven promising young athletes in tennis benefit from this programme.
