About

In order to share Norwegian winter sports expertise and to support young athletes from around the world, we organize international training camps targeted to young athletes and their coaches. All training camps are organised in close corporation with the respective National Federation. In addition to the physical training, we also focus on seminars and social activities for both the athletes and the coaches. As a part of the legacy from the Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer 2016, we want the participants to “Meet, learn and share”. We also aim to involve young people from Norway in the camp as “young leaders” to give them valuable experiences in a young international environment.

I think camps like this is really important because we need to share ideas and as a small nation we don’t have the support someway like Norway has. We can learn so much from all of the other nations that are here. I know that the athletes benefit, but then as an coach I also really benefit from learning for other coaches”
