transition support

The role of a Chief Transition Guide is to help athletes through the difficult transition from sport to a professional business career. Introducing Jaime Komer...

 

Jaime, a decorated goalkeeper for USA's Water Polo team, is not only an Olympic Silver Medalist, two-time World Champion and four-time All-American; she is also a well-established health and wellness coach, empowerment and motivational speaker.

 

Jaime's purpose is to redirect the conversation around mental wellbeing in sport and to remind athletes they are more than their achievements; they are human beings who are allowed to be vulnerable and real. With her guidance, athletes receive the emotional and physical support they need to successfully transition through this retirement, and face whatever their future holds.

 

At ACT, we care for the athletes because we once were the athletes. We understand the challenges faced, and as most athletes leaving professional sport also leave behind their support network, our purpose is to provide that support throughout the transition process.

 

We are the athlete's team after sport.

the transition experience

It's easy to mis-understand the challenges that elite athletes face upon retirement, but much like military personnel, athletes are regimented, focussed, resourceful, used to routine and deliver their best each and every time. Our job is to help them take those fantastic qualities and apply them to the next phase of their careers within your organisation.

transition support

Transition Support is a key element in the successful transition of every retiring professional athlete.

 

ACT work closely with all athletes placed with business partners to ensure the transition process is as smooth and painless as possible. There is no doubt that there will be many challenges along the way but together we will face them and together we will overcome them!

 

The ACT Transition support team work tirelessly in its pursuit of our athletes next passion and purpose away from sport. We are part of your new team that is here to listen, advise, guide, support and help every step of the way. 

 

With decades of practical, and lived experience, at our finger tips ACT are experts in transition support, support that is consistent, dependable, available at all times and totally focussed on you!

the transition triad

Ensuring that every athlete we work with experiences a successful transition is at the heart of everything we do at ACT. It's in our DNA!

 

This can't happen however unless both the athlete and the business partner fully buy-in to the concept that comprehensive 360 support is the most effect route to success and retention.

 

Therefore working in partnership with AB, ACT will ensure that everything we do is centred around the successful transition of every athlete we work with, both from an holistic and career perspective.
