Athlete Career Transition
At ACT, we understand the challenges that athletes face as they embark on their career transition, because we were once athletes ourselves.
An athlete leaving professional sport also moves away from support networks, cultures and lifestyles that define their identity. ACT’s purpose is to create a handrail for former sports professionals at this crucial time in their careers.
We work closely with athletes placed with business partners to ensure the transition is as smooth and successful as possible.
