The average playing career of a professional basketball player lasts on average four and half years. Therefore, preparing for your professional life after basketball is just as important as your current career on-the-court. The short-term nature of professional sporting careers and the uncertainty of sport (injuries, contracts, etc.) mean that education and skills training are key to achieving goals later in life.
In this section you will be provided with important information regarding your opportunities to develop off-court skills that will help you make a living after your playing career ends. Explore education options so that you’re already on track for a new career.
