AFTER THE CHEERING STOPS: Transitional Support for Success after Sports

Many professional athletes experience numerous challenges after their days of competition on the field have ended. These individuals are often unprepared for their futures and are not always provided with appropriate guidance to prepare for their transitions. This forum will engage athletes, agents and executives in a conversation on social and economic opportunities both within the sports industry and the business world, while providing significant opportunities for networking and exposure, as well as training to assist athletes with their specific transition plans into post-career ventures. The goal is to also provide tools, resources and support for athletes both in preparation for retirement and best practices for success in their post-career endeavors.
