Transitioning from football is a difficult task and with the average playing career lasting just 5.5 years many players have given little thought to a life after football.
In November, the AFL Players Association, TwoPointZero and AFL Sports Ready hosted the
Inaugural Outduction Camp designed to help players identify career paths, develop their job seeking skills and meet perspective employers
Over the course of two days at the scenic Moonah Links resort, 40 transitioning players from the last three seasons gathered with the opportunity to build on the personal and career development insights they uncovered during their playing time, and were provided with the chance to put that into practice as they seek their next venture.
On Day 1, the players were set up with the chance to identify the skills that they can bring to the workforce in their next chapter. TwoPointZero assisted the players by setting up career profiling and networking opportunities.
On Day 2, AFL SportsReady took the lead by bringing in host of employers from a range of industries to allow the players the chance to network. A number of former players who have transitioned successfully were on-hand to assist.
