Leading on and off the field

Making the Transition With the NCAA

With overwhelming odds  against student-athletes going pro in sports, the NCAA decided to help them make the transition from leaders on the field to leaders in life.

Each year, more than 400,000 student-athletes participate in 23 sports at more than 1,000 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) colleges and universities. Regardless of which sport they play (or how well they perform), when they graduate they all have one thing in common: the need to find a job. And while some aspire to “turn pro,” very few will have the opportunity to do so. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are only 16,000 professional athletes in the United States today. 

Talk about a competitive job market!
