Supporting the Post-career Transition

All sport organisations shall establish a substantial career transition plan that bring added value to the athletes at the end of their sports career.

Below you can find some useful suggestions regarding this:

  • carry out some educational programmes on mental health, focusing on the possible issues and exploring the various solutions;
  • inspire athletes to implement useful skills outside of the sports environment;
  • collaborate with governing entities;
  • boost athletes to utilise their free-time efficiently by enhancing their networking outside of the baseball and softball environment;
  • organise didactic activities aimed to improve the knowledge about the self-management of injuries;
  • support the comprehension of mental health among all the staff.
