The Athletes are the core of IFSC organisation and activities. The IFSC's main duty is to showcase their talents and abilities all around the world by offering them state-of-the-art events.

The key element of our organisation is the Athletes' Commission. This Statutory Commission represents the voice of the Athletes in the governance process. You will find all the information about this Commission in the relevant section.

If the athletes make us dream throughout the year, they also deserve the best organisation during the international sport climbing season. The Athletes section provides all the necessary administrative information regarding the participation of the athletes to the events.
