Many former student-athletes have difficulty maintaining an active lifestyle when they are no longer playing their sport competitively.
Moving On! prepares student-athletes to make healthy transitions to life after college sports. The goal of the program is to help student-athletes effectively move on from the structured environment of college sports, and keep moving— meaning that they transition to a physically active lifestyle even after they hang up their uniforms for the last time.
Led by anyone on a college campus (facilitator guide provided), Moving On! utilizes small group discussion activities to provide student-athletes with information about physical activity benefits and guidelines for leading a healthy life in the future.
- explore how no longer being a college athlete affects the way they see themselves, and they reflect on the role that physical activity will play in their future lives.
- are equipped with specific strategies to plan for their own lifestyle transition by learning how to set effective goals, prepare for challenges, and develop practical solutions.
- are exposed to lifetime physical activities such as yoga, kickboxing, and dancing.
The Moving On! student-athlete workbook and companion facilitator guide help program participants and leaders progress through the educational content and fun activities.
After completing Moving On! student-athletes will walk away with a game plan for their next season: life.
