Created by the founders of Crossing the Line Sport and The Final Whistle, The Athlete Advantage is delivered by former athletes, psychologists and career development experts with more than three decades of collective experience in the field.

We’ve listened to and learned from what current and former athletes say they need, and responded with a program that reflects the challenges of both elite performance and life after sport.

While a lot of athletes are enthusiastic about their careers beyond sport, many don’t know where to focus their energy or how to transfer their skills to the workforce. Recruitment agencies report that they can easily place athletes in jobs but around 50% don’t make it past probation.

The Athlete Advantage works on a deeper level with athletes, to discover what they want to do after sport and how best they can prepare for it. The blend of online learning and structured 1:1 coaching offers both flexibility and focus, which is enhanced by real-life mentoring and work experience opportunities.

Whether just starting out, in the midst of competing or recently retired, The Athlete Advantage helps athletes:

  • Explore career opportunities
  • Hone their transferable skills
  • Develop a portfolio of useful career resources
  • Strengthen their wellbeing and resilience.

Athletes are then ready to tackle a life after sport that is tailored specifically to them.
