About the Program

Program Overview

Off The Court supports and serves the interests of players following their career as a professional basketball player. The program assists with their transition process and common barriers players face going into retirement.

Our goal is to build on the brotherhood and community among players to celebrate their transition, with a supportive environment that creates stability, wellness and growth.

Ultimately, we want to be proactive and intentional in empowering active and recently retired players to create a culture of achievement off the court.

Off The Court will help players through the transition process by focusing on these five pillars.

  • Mental Health and Wellness/Relationship Management

  • Financial Literacy/Wealth Management

  • Brotherhood

  • Nutrition/Physical Health

  • Career/Professional Development
