Our story

Being a professional athlete is amazing. Until it’s not. More specifically, until the moment when a player starts to realize that he knows nothing but the sport. This realization comes often when the athlete's career is over and he or she must starts from the ground zero. Missed on things that an athlete might not even know about followed by feelings of emptiness, loss of identity, and even confusion. Those are just a few of the feelings during the major changes in someone’s life. A grand change like the transition from sport to a normal life could have various effects. The average life span of a professional athletes career is around 5 years, which a tremendously short period of time, considering what life has to offer.
