WHAT WE DO

Statement of Purpose

The Athletes’ Coalition advocates for and assists individual athletes with negotiations, career planning, and post-career guidance.

We focus on athletes and sports that are typically underserved in these areas; these gaps may be the result of sex, gender, race/ethnicity, age, education, and/or social capital, among other factors.

TAC Narrative of Activities

The Athletes’ Coalition is a nonprofit that advocates for and assists individual athletes with negotiations, career planning, and post-career guidance. We focus on athletes and sports that are typically under-served in these areas. Our services are provided at low or no cost where possible and funded through memberships and the generosity of donors. Our board members each bring experience and passion providing guidance and counsel in formal and informal capacities to the under-served athlete community.

We have developed relationships with contacts working in both the athletic and outdoors industries from which we plan to develop our sponsor base, and with professionals working in service industries with whom we plan to develop partnerships in order to connect our member athletes to the following types of services:

  • Health care professionals (acupuncturists, massage therapists, physicians, nutritionists, physical therapists, sports psychologists, mental health services)
  • Financial planning
  • Career planning
  • Contract negotiation
  • Post-career guidance/retirement planning

Our services are provided at low or no cost where possible and funded through memberships and the generosity of our donors. Our board members each bring experience and passion providing guidance and counsel in formal and informal capacities to the under-served athlete community.
