About Life After Sport

"Life after sport" is where we highlight former athletes and coaches that transitioned into sport business. Many athletes and coaches go on to work in sport business when their playing and coaching careers end.

On this page, you will find unique stories and insight into an ever-growing trend - life after sport. Once an athlete or coach finishes their playing or coaching career, they move into the business side.

Indeed, that's where we come in to feature them.

It may be a SnaP episode with a former sports star turned president or actor. Or it might be a write-up on a former basketball player with his/her/their own business, you will find it here.
