Career Development Initiative

With retirement being one of the only certainties in professional sports, it is important for athletes to think about and plan for the long term.  The MLS Players Union Career Development Program is designed to help players successfully manage this transition.  We aim to provide current and former MLS players with a blueprint for planning as well as a support system.  Here on the website and in our Career Development Guidebook, we lay out a framework and describe the resources available to players with respect to degree completion, other continuing education, financial literacy and avenues to develop and enhance employable skills. No matter where you are in your playing career, it is never too early to start taking action and planning for life after sport.
