The aim is to provide financial support (of between CHF 500 - CHF 3’000 per individual) for relevant education, training, equipment or other activity. The Development Commission intends this initiative to help top Skaters to stay in the sport, to share their knowledge and experience, preferably in their own country/region, and to use their position as a role model to strengthen the sport in their country.
