Webinar Wrap-up: Pillars of Student-Athlete Development

This past Wednesday (7/20/16), over 100 college athletics professionals joined Game Plan’s Erica Cenci for a webinar outlining industry trends and best practices for implementing a holistic student-athlete development program.

The webinar emphasized student-athletes’ career development along with their transition out of sports and into the professional world. In addition, we highlighted student-athletes’ career outcomes (a job in-hand upon graduating) as the new benchmark for successful student-athlete development.

Here’s an overview of what was addressed:

  1. The current state of student-athlete development, past standards / KPIs, and future benchmarks
  2. Elements of successful student-athlete development programs
  3. The journey of a student-athlete, segmented into 5 key stages of development (each with its own key activities and KPIs)
  4. The benefits that come from implementing a more comprehensive student-athlete development program

In case you missed it, don’t worry! The webinar was recorded and is available for viewing at your convenience here.
