It’s easy to think that athletes "qualify" for the La Sportiva Team by posting winning results at certain races or putting up the biggest numbers out at the crags.  In fact this is only half of what it takes to become a La Sportiva Athlete.  We are looking for people who can act as "Ambassadors" for the La Sportiva brand: elite athletes who consistently perform well, are seen as leaders in their sport and within the community, and who aren't shy about spreading the word about the products that work well for them. We don't "sponsor" elite athletes, we work in partnership with unique individuals to help support them in pursuing their passions in exchange for promoting our brand and enriching the outdoor community.

Some things we look for:

  • Elite Level Results
  • Community Involvement
  • Well Developed Social Media Presence 
  • Event Attendance
  • Positive Attitude
  • Clear and Consistent Communication
  • Personal Blogs
  • Media Appearances

If you think you have what it takes to be a La Sportiva Ambassador, we'd love to hear from you during our open application window!  Email us directly at  Sponsorship applications for the following year are accepted from Oct 1- Dec 1.  Please include an Ambassador Resume (in spreadsheet form) listing your recent accomplishments and a cover letter detailing your community involvement, upcoming plans, and why you think you would be a good fit for the La Sportiva program.  The more you include about why you want to be a part of the La Sportiva family the better your chances are!

Finally, one of the best ways to get involved with the La Sportiva Ambassador Program is to get to know our current Ambassadors and Representatives.  Look for La Sportiva representatives at local events: gym demos, climbing, festivals, trail races, and much more!  Come up, talk to us about why you love the outdoors, what you like to do, and why you're stoked on La Sportiva.  Making a positive impression on a current Representative is a great way to get involved with La Sportiva in your region.  

NOTE:  The La Sportiva Team rosters have been filled for 2016.  Please send inquires and applications for the 2017 La Sportiva Teams  starting October 1, 2017.  Due to the high volume of applicants, incomplete applications will not be accepted.
