Since 2020 we’ve been working with athletes to find the best way to provide support and guidance to athletes, whether they are in the process of transitioning from professional sport, or they have already retired and are exploring new opportunities outside of sport. The key for us is to make it tangible, impactful and sustainable.

I was definitely a sceptic when I was first introduced to the idea but I was also aware that my journey since leaving professional sport has been a confusing and lonely experience. The immediate benefit of joining Reboot, and more specifically our forum, was having a sense of belonging and realising that although all our journeys are unique the underlying difficulties aren't - I found comfort in this. The forum setup has provided the perfect space to deload on certain aspects of my life where only former athletes have particular insight, as well as the opportunity to create some incredibly meaningful relationships with likeminded people.

Retirement from professional sport is so hard, you immediately feel lost and without direction once you decide to give up a life that you have dedicated countless hours to.  Reboot provided me a platform to connect with like-minded individuals from diverse sporting backgrounds in a confidential safe space.  The value of Reboot lies in the format where I can once again share ideas, and get valuable feedback to implement in my everyday life.  The network that one can establish with forum members is invaluable.

Sport gives you a chance and an opportunity to belong to a sanctum. Reboot shares those core values of belonging and has created that space outside of the game to help you navigate through the biggest game, the game of life.

Being involved with Reboot over the last year has been incredibly helpful to connect with other former athletes and have a forum for us to help one another navigate life outside of sport. I wish Reboot had been around when I stopped playing professionally, but as a coach I can see the incredible value it offers for players who are in the transition beyond the game and heading into the working world.

Reboot has created a safe space for me to process my retirement from my sporting career with others who understand the difficulty, as well as build life long friendship with people who have taught me so much. It’s a feeling of belonging that was lost when I retired. I have a new team, and this one’s for life.

Reboot has fundamentally changed my life. Finally a safe space with like minded professionals with similar struggles and success stories. No judgement. Lifelong friendships made.

When athletes retire from international sports, we are faced with a lot of questions and having to redefine our identity in our next chapter of life. This period of transition is filled with a lot of unknown and new beginnings. One thing that has become apparent, no matter what sport you may have played, is that athletes all face similar challenges. The Reboot Forum has provided me with a safe space of former athletes navigating a new world together. A space where I have been able to be vulnerable with like-minded people and share our experiences of our new chapters. It’s not therapy but its therapeutic and a commitment I look forward to every month. We get to grow, share and laugh together as a group with people who understand us. Reboot Forum should be something that athletes join immediately after retirement.

Reboot has given me the amazing opportunity to journey with fellow ex athletes as we all make sense of our lives after sport.I found moving away from pro sport quite lonely. Naturally in a team you spend so much time together and there is always someone to check in with, or download to. My reboot forum has become just that. In the business of normal life I have people ready to listen, support and laugh with and that’s a real privilege.


Lloyd Norris-Jones,

Transitioning from an international sports career is incredibly challenging. The moment you decide to step away from a life you've dedicated countless hours to, you often feel disoriented and lacking direction. However, Reboot has emerged as a lifeline for individuals like me, offering a platform to connect with like-minded individuals from diverse sporting backgrounds in a secure and confidential environment. The true value of Reboot lies in its format, allowing me to once again share ideas and receive valuable feedback that I can implement in my daily life. The network of connections I have established with fellow forum members through Reboot is truly priceless.
