Game Plan: A Career Transition Program

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

The Canadian Olympic Committee, the Canadian Paralympic Committee, Sport Canada and the Canadian Sport Institute Network are pleased to announce the launch of the first phase of Game Plan, a career transition program that provides support to Canadian athletes in life and sport.

Game Plan empowers high performance athletes to pursue excellence by helping them to plan for their career and life after competitive sport. Having a transition plan reduces stress, minimizes distractions and helps athletes focus on their current goals in order to perform to their maximum potential.

Game Plan is delivered across Canada through the Canadian Sport Institute Network. The Network’s seven locations provide a world-class, multi-sport daily training environment for Canadian athletes and coaches. With the support of our partners, the Canadian Sport Institute Network contributes to Canada’s world leading Olympic and Paralympic podium performances by providing expert services in sport science, medicine, coach education and career transition.

Today is the official launch of the program’s website and social media platforms. The website is a one-stop portal where athletes will be able to access a team of experts in career development, transition planning and goal-setting. Phase II of Game Plan will be launched in early 2015, and will include on-line transition training modules for athletes, and the announcement of athlete mentors.

Athletes and coaches are encouraged to contact the Canadian Sport Institute in their area to learn more about athlete eligibility requirements and services available under Game Plan.
