Welcome to the blog and resource page for Athlete Life Development.  We are a pair of consultants specialising in providing lifeskills, career and development support to performance athletes.  This page will include links to resources, topics for discussion, and tips for athletes and coaches.  Please feel free to add your comments and get involved in the debates.

First up, this is a great link to remind athletes about making the most of their life as an athlete, and to prepare for life after sport.  For many, the transition into life after sport can be a daunting one, but with proper planning, the stress of retirement from sport can be greatly reduced.  This is what Ato Boldon has to say on the matter:

What are your tips for current athletes?  How do you think they can prepare for life after sport?  Please post your comments below.

Career planning is just one of the many services that we provide.  For further details please contact us.

  1. I think many athletes don't realise or take advantage of the skills and behaviours they develop through their sports career.... Discipline, Motivated, ability to work as a team, or make tough decisions.

    Make a list of some of the areas of your sporting life that you think are applicable to the business world, so when you come to the dreaded interview day you have a pool full of situations and scenarios you can bring to the table!!!
