Resources will expand in the future for other key stakeholders of the IFSC including athletes, officials, and administrators. In order to develop these resources, the Censeo Platform will be used for the distribution of content and certification of stakeholders of the sport.

WAoS is already a long-term partner of many International Federations and other major organisations across the international sport sector.

Marco Scolaris, President of the IFSC, said:

“We have cultivated projects to further develop the resources we offer to our members for years. To provide long-term opportunities for those looking to get into and make progress in our sport. Reflecting on what we have learned throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed us to identify what is important in our approach to development, education, and training. We look forward to working with WAoS whose experience in this area is invaluable.”

Chris Solly, CEO of WAoS, adds:

“It is very exciting to announce the IFSC as a new international sport partner for WAoS. For sports relatively new into the Olympic Programme such as the IFSC, it is essential that they develop the tools that provide opportunities in the long-term for their sports. We are thrilled to be working with them and ultimately helping them to achieve their vision for sport climbing.”
