SCTA is looking for a new president

Do you enjoy helping others to live healthier lives and like the cold? Then become president of the SCTA and build something unique in Switzerland. We are a young association with the mission to make cold training safe and available in Switzerland. Why is that? Because we are convinced that cold is good for you and can reduce the ever-increasing health costs. Now is the time to expand our training program, train new instructors and establish norms and standards.

We are looking for a visionary leader who can translate a passion for health and cold into practical and innovative programs. If you want to build something unique and are passionate about health and cold therapy, then apply to join us and actively shape the future of cold training!
