Understanding the retirement and life experiences of retired collegiate, professional, and national/Olympic athletes.
Our goals are to understand:
Factors contributing to various retirement outcomes;
Who, what, and how athletes are best supported (if they are supported);
What athletes experience as they adjust to their retirement.
Who were you before you retired?
Now that you’re retired, how are your cognitive health, social life, mental state, physical wellness, work, and financial situation? Are you thriving or struggling, and in what ways?
Give retired athletes a platform to share their experiences and wisdom with the general public.
Identify athletes who are at-risk for a challenging transition out of sport.
Target specific areas of need so resources and programs know how to best help athletes before, during, and after transitioning out of sport.
Contribute to scientifically sound arguments for program funding
Decisively answer the question, ‘is there a problem?’
