Athlete Career Programme workshop takes place in Zurich

Volero Zurich players attended the Athlete Career Programme course on Thursday
Zurich, Switzerland, November 25, 2016 – Volero Zurich players, FIVB Athletes’ Commission President Gilberto Amauri de Godoy Filho (Giba) and FIVB staff members attended an Athlete Career Programme workshop on Thursday on managing the transition between a career as an elite athlete and achieving one’s goals in the labour market.

The workshop encouraged the participants to identify their transferable strengths and define a game plan aligned with the directions they wish to pursue in the labour market. Modules focused on getting to know one’s motivations, defining personal goals, strategies for effective networking and the CV as a personal marketing tool.

Created in 2005, the International Olympic Committee Athlete Career Programme (IOC ACP) specifically provides resources and training to elite athletes in the areas of education, life skills and employment. The programme is developed internationally via the IOC ACP Outreach Programme.

The FIVB is committed to promoting the Athlete Career Programme and the creation of the FIVB’s Athletes’ Commission this year is seen as an important step in the federation’s support to athletes in line with Recommendation 18 of Olympic Agenda 2020.

Former Olympic volleyball champion and three-time World Championship winner Giba leads the Commission as its President and former Serbian Olympic volleyball champion Vladimir Grbi? is the Commission’s Secretary. They are joined by a host of other former champions, including London 2012 beach volleyball gold medallist Julius Brink from Germany, three-time Olympic beach volleyball champion Kerri Walsh-Jennings from the United States and 2013 beach volleyball world champion Xue Chen from China.
