21 Jul STP host Network event
This event brought together key decision makers and athletes representing organisations including The Premier League, The Rugby Player’s Association, Volleyball England, The Lawn Tennis Association, Professional Cricketers’ Association, Leicester Tigers, Crystal Palace Football Club, Brentford Football Club, Loughborough University, Bath University and St Mary’s University, amongst many other esteemed guests and colleagues.
Here are just a few of the key findings from the day:
– Over a third of you agreed that our priority role should be to work with the industry to find solutions to the issues surrounding transition
– 59% of you said that it is the athlete’s responsibility to help themselves during retirement, but that player readiness and empowerment are two of the key challenges surrounding transition
– The majority identified understanding more about the challenges of transition as the key learning from the day. We hope that bringing this diverse and high-level group together gave you the opportunity to view the debate in 360.
