Rohrmoos and Schladming were host towns in Austria for the Special Olympics Europe Eurasia Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding Head Coaches Seminar on Jan 15-18, 2017. 

The aim of the seminar was to prepare the head coaches for the sporting events for these two sports during World Winter Games 2017 in Austria. Participating head coaches represented Netherlands, Denmark, Slovenia, Finland, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Croatia, Luxembourg, Great Britain, Sweden, Ireland and Romania from our region. 

2017 World Winter Games Austria Sports Director Heinrich Olsen said, “From my point of view, the seminar was a very optimal opportunity for preparing for the Games. We not only focused on theory when we discussed best practices but also had practical sessions on the slopes for coaches to familiarize themselves with Austria 2017 sports facilities." 

The trip concluded with a special dinner honored with the attendance of the Mayor of Schladming.
