Paphos: Don’t miss the deadline. 1st ETU Athletes & Coaches Development Camp, 2019

By Paul Groves | 20 Jan, 2019

2019 is well underway now and ETU is delighted to announce that the first of the Athlete & Coaches’ Development Camps is already attracting attention around Europe.

E-mails were sent out to all National Federations but in order to ensure that everyone gets a chance to apply, we thought it would be a good idea to publish this on the ETU Website.

The location will be Paphos, Cyprus. Many of you are aware that this is a key destination for winter training and that many athletes are already out on the island (enjoying the sunshine while some of us are having to scrape the car window before we can go to work and some cannot event get to work due to the heavy snow).

So, direct from Željko Bijuk, ETU Development Coordinator, here is the information. You will find links below to download the application forms.

Dear National Federation

ETU is happy to be able to announce that the 1st 2019 ETU Athletes & Coaches Development Camp will be held in Paphos, Cyprus.
