In order for athletes to perform well ‘on the field’, it is important that they feel in control of their life ‘off the field’. Kate has considerable expertise in the area of athlete dual-career management, enabling athletes’ sporting and non-sporting commitments to work together and complement each other.
The types of supports are many and varied, but include some of the following:
Managing secondary school academic and sporting commitments Advice on third level courses and college scholarships Teaching lifeskills unique to the demands of being an elite performer Career coaching Preparing for life after sport Supporting athlete wellbeing

“Retiring from sport can be a very daunting time but after speaking to Kate I felt confident that this is a time to look forward to. She helped me to set new goals and take steps in going about achieving them. Having this has taken away a lot of stress and I look forward to working with her again.”
