Creating Impact Is Hard, Now You Don't Have To Go It Alone

Doubt. No direct access to experts. Confusion about where to go or what path. Fear of falling short. Well we don’t want that to be you.

Sports science practitioners battle with these struggles every day. Whether you are an aspiring sports scientist or a professional out there plying your trade you know that having the knowledge is only one part of the equation and that ‘how’ you work is what will truly get you ahead. You know the vocational skills gap is there, you know that performance environments are complex, pressured, demanding, results focused, and highly dependent on your ability to work with others.

Many graduates fall off the cliff edge because they’re not ready for work. Sports performance professionals face these dynamic and every changing demands every day which can lead to unfocused action, paralysis of momentum, poor decision making, and feeling overwhelmed. Faced with these struggles, it’s no surprise why so many fall short of achieving their personal career goals.

So little emphasis in education and work is put on how to become effective at working. Whether you’re studying and want to up your employability, you’re about to step out into the working world or already out there as professional performer – you’re often left to your own devices to get ahead.

The Right Place?

Yes! You are most certainly in the right place to accelerate your career, though don’t think there is a short cut.

It’s not easy. Success is never guaranteed. However, the probability of success, building the skills to thrive, can be dramatically improved by joining forces with others who share your ambition, appetite and approach.

The S.C. Community

Introducing the Supporting Champions community. We’re proud to serve practitioners from around the world in the start-up phase of their careers through to seasoned professionals.

The community is for committed, growth-minded, progressive aspiring and professional performance practitioners, motivated to enhance their professional effectiveness by self-discovery, willing to do the work, eager to create their own future.

A big focus though is about how you work, your skills and importantly thinking in an interdisciplinary way (we believe you’ll probably have more than enough knowledge, but it’s how you use that knowledge that will determine your effectiveness). However, there are discipline specific interviews, guides and examples and there is a chance for you to create discipline specific forum discussions with people of a similar interest.
