“Gonet Going Up” supports young local athletes who have decided to devote everything to their passion to give themselves a chance to become a professional high performance athlete. This critical period, often between ages 17 and 22, is often the most difficult and most demanding in a career, but also the most exciting. It is at this stage that we want to work alongside them to help them in an endeavour combining tenacity and a quest for performance.
