Supporting athlete transitions out of sport
Transitioning out of sport after standing on an Olympic or Paralympic podium, or after provincial/territorial competition, can be difficult. Tips to support athlete mental health through this transition include:
- Detrain your body and mind to adjust to the different but challenging demands of life after sport.
- Find purpose in the day to day by exploring other interests and developing new daily routines.
- Recognize the skills you learned through sport and apply them in other areas of your life.
