Formasportis the name of the training organization dedicated to sports professions which was launched this year in Normandy. A project imagined by three brains, including that of Frederic Esnault.
Well-known face of sports in Alençon (Orne), especially for fans of the orange ball, this 42-year-old man has held many positions at Basketball US Damigny Alençon (USBDA), from sports educator to director of operations, his current position.
Two first lessons
For the past ten years, he has been involved in training structures in Caen, providing sports management courses. With his two associates, David Onillon and Justine Lenrouilly, he wanted to “fly with his own wings”.
“We have been working together for a long time in Caen. We wanted to take things in hand to set up a project that resembles us,” explains Frédéric Esnault, president of the organization.
Formasport offers, from this start of the school year, apprenticeship training. Starting with a professional diploma entitled “Technico-commercial sports marketing” (Bac +2), affiliated with the CFA Sport Animation Tourisme Normandie, in Caen and Rouen. “It is centered on the marketing development of clubs. There is a real demand from them, ”shares the Ornais. Between fifteen and twenty apprentices will be welcomed on each site.
A solidarity diploma
The association is also opening a BPJEPS Physical Activities For All (APT) in partnership with the Caen Formation structure, in Hérouville-Saint-Clair. A one-year course built around three axes: social, solidarity and humanitarian.
“The students will intervene in the schools of the priority neighborhoods of Hérouville and will set up actions intended to help children with disabilities. In June, they will take part in a humanitarian trip to Senegal to talk to the locals about sports practices and bring them sports and school equipment. »
The entrepreneur is also aimed at people who wish to get involved by providing financial or material support.
Soon in Alençon?
Another project is in the mind of Frédéric Esnault, “Alençon pure strain”. Formasport, whose head office is in Alençon and which has surrounded itself with local economic players (banker, accountant, notary, etc.), should quickly set up training there to “prepare for training in sports professions”.
“It would be a question of preparing the entrance tests for the training courses, of selecting the courses, of refining the courses, of catching up with certain delays…”
Aimed at young people up to the age of 29, the course could be launched as soon as first quarter 2023.
“From Alençon, it’s close to my heart. There are few offers for sports professions in the sector. Many young people want to work there, but everything is in Caen, Rouen or Le Mans, ”shares the Ornais.
And to conclude: “I want to give access to my job on my territory, to which I am very attached. »
