Pro team

The project

This project comes from the fact that freediving is still a developing sport, not very structured, which means that athletes get little help and support to perform at their best. For athletes to reach their maximum potential in these conditions is hard and depends a lot on supervision and on the athletes’ ability to fund their season

A group of friend, passionate freedivers had the idea to help young promising freedivers and give them the means to reach their objectives in depth freediving, within a structured team. They got inspired by similar structures set-up in other sports (rowing, climbing,…) that allowed young athletes to reach their disciplines’ top level.

The name, Blue Addiction Pro Team, was chosen to highlight the help that Blue Addiction will provide to the athletes on their professional development and the support on their training.


Pro Team goals

Help young freedivers that need support to their freediving carreer :

  • Support them on funding ;
  • Bring them a supporting structure : trainers, coaches on the different performance dimensions of competitive freediving ;
  • Help them build-up their professional development, to facilitate their post-career transition.

The Team structure ‘Pro-team’ allows to stimulate the team-spirit, while increasing the emulation and sharing between the team athletes.
