TIME-OUT

Overview
  • TIME-OUT is a project in the field of dual careers that focuses on the integration of basketball players into the labour market, showing the importance of thinking in advance about the life that follows after sport.

    FIBA Europe, together with its academic partners, is creating an innovative programme designed specifically for basketball players. The innovative part that this project brings to the participants is the combination of three different degrees:

    • "Leadership and Management" certificate/diploma depending on the entry level of the athlete (delivered by Northumbria University)
    • "Basketball Management" qualification (delivered by FIBA Europe and FIBA)
    • "Talented Athlete Lifestyle Support (TALS)" certificate (delivered by TASS)

    The second leg of the project will be to place the newly qualified managers in their federations, or in other sports organisations, and also to set-up player development programmes linked to FIBA, IBF (International Basketball Foundation) and the TASS (Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme) support network.

    The TIME-OUT project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
