ACT has been created through a combination of the career transition experiences of the business owners and the fact that the professionals athletes are now retiring from, in many cases, their first and only career as professional sports person with little to fall back on.
The one reality in professional sport is that at some stage an individual athlete will have to retire from that sport. For most professional athletes the thought of this eventuality is too much to bare, let alone to plan for. The fact is that for the majority of professional athletes there is an element of invincibility about attitudes to their sporting career and an i'll think about that next year mentality when it comes to planning for their future.
ACT believe that education is key for the continued progression of the athlete in terms of securing their career away from sport and explore numerous exclusive education opportunities presenting the athlete with the best options for development within their chosen career.
Along side the career development and education program are also very passionate that a broader approach to the athletes transition needs to be looked at. ACT have created a support network for the athlete that offers advice, counseling and guidance on all aspects of their career transition.
