Support For Sportspeople

As a sportsperson, you have worked hard and made sacrifices to perform at your very best. Your life will very likely revolve around your sporting career. But what if that was all taken away tomorrow? Do you have a Plan B? A career-ending injury, deselection or loss of funding can happen at any time and mean the end of a sporting career and the beginning of a new chapter.

We can help you prepare for life after sport. Switched On is our FREE athlete support service. By joining Switched On, you will access specialist guidance, support and knowledge that will put you in an excellent position in the future to transition successfully to a life outside of sport.
