Career transition among athletes: Is there life after sports?

David Lavallee, Sunghee Park, Jim Taylor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

First paragraph: During the course of athletes’ careers, the primary focus of most sports administrators, coaches, and sport psychologists is on assisting athletes to maximize their competitive performances. This emphasis is expected, as athletes are their responsibilities during their competitive tenures, and when the athletes leave the team or sport organization, their attention has to turn to the current athletes under their charge. This system, unfortunately, tends to neglect what happens to athletes when they retire and must make the transition to another career and lifestyle.
