Transitioning from professional sports to your next career

Crossover

real discussions with real game being shared

Synopsis

In order to have the advantage, anticipation is key. Getting a read and making your play. A play that’s going to lend you the upper hand. As accurate as this statement is in sport, this truth exists in life as a whole.

As athletes, we understand this concept completely. As students it sometimes seems foreign. In reality, this intuition is what separates the good from the great. Making a read on your future ahead of time is what will allow you to hit that switch seamlessly as you evolve.

We hope that in breaking down the thoughts, feelings and advice of these athletes, you will be able to take their insights and make them personal. So you can define your voice and make the plays necessary now, so when it comes to hit that button – you’re ready.

At the end of each conversation, there will be an open Q+A in which some viewers will have their questions answered by the guest.

BLAQ Athletes of all levels discuss transitioning from the locker room to the board room.

The Kickback has taken the concept of the sneaker to provide access to under-served youth in various areas. Art, media, sport, mental health and communication. Their foundation of the sneaker speaks to global identity, and step by step they’re connecting the dots around the world through relatable, accessible programming.
