Why not planning for them hurts more than you think
Disclaimer that I didn't read the research in the "Some Bad News" bit, but I wonder how much of the lack of support and guidance is perception vs reality. Athletes probably have more structure built into their day to day schedule with coaches, trainers, teammates, etc than the average non-athlete. So are career centers actually giving them less time or the same amount of time that is then perceived by the athletes as less? Next question would be if providing additional resources to help athletes transition out of sports is necessary / justified?
