TIME-OUT 2.0 workshop organized in conjunction with FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2021

STRASBOURG (France) - The current players involved in the TIME-OUT 2.0 project gathered in Strasbourg for a workshop in conjunction with the ongoing FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2021.

The project, which is co-funded by Erasmus+ Sport, was relaunched by FIBA Europe following the huge success of TIME-OUT with the aims of promoting education in and through sport with a special focus on skills development.

TIME-OUT 2.0 also aims to use the experience of participants from the original program and the latest player workshops were led by TIME-OUT graduates Anna Barthold and Pavel Pumprla.

Kamil Novak, FIBA Executive Director Europe, visited the players in their working environment and reaffirmed FIBA Europe's commitment to supporting them in the project.

"I would like to thank the French Basketball Federation, one of our main partners in the TIME-OUT 2.0 project, for the wonderful organization of this workshop," Mr. Novak said.

"I am also delighted that I was able to meet the players in a real-world setting. This gave me the opportunity to assure them that FIBA Europe will be on their side during every stage of their career transition," he added.

The President of the French Basketball Federation and member of the FIBA Central Board, Jean-Pierre Siutat, was a guest speaker at the workshop.

One of the highlights was a seminar on the Business of Sport that was led by the expert in the field, Geoff Wilson, and included a presentation from FIBA 3x3 Managing Director Alex Sanchez.

The players were welcomed by club members of the Saint-Joseph Strasbourg and had a tour of the arena before settling in to enjoy the action of Russia against Slovenia in the Qualification to Quarter-Finals phase, on Monday.

TIME-OUT 2.0 officially got underway in June 2020 with an online tip-off for the project.
