Athletes retired from sport, and considering retirement, often feel a grand sense of loss. A loss of identity, a loss of community, support and camaraderie; a loss of personal validation, a loss of direction and purpose.
The ACE Pivot Program, held April 18-19 in Colorado Springs, works to assist Team USA athletes in rebuilding their athlete tribe, reframing identity, rediscovering self and purpose through discussion of their shared experience.
Led by sports psychology professionals and specialists, athletes engage in a 2-day workshop and online follow-up meetings with their peers, designed to develop a growth mindset and empower them to tackle the next chapter of their lives with renewed support and confidence. Athletes will realize they are not alone, share and relate their experiences with others going through the same transition, and receive support for future success.
All travel and lodging accommodations will be provided to participants. To apply, complete the following application: April 2020 Pivot Program Application. For more information, please contact Terris Tiller at Terris.Tiller@usoc.org.
