Athlete Management Principles (2220THS)

High performance sport operates in an increasingly complex legal, social, political and technological environment. Given the ever-increasing demands placed on high performance athletes today, managers require the appropriate professional skills, knowledge, and experience to support athletes during their playing careers and in periods of transition, including extensive understanding of the legal and social frameworks and systems required to maximise playing talent and career transition. The Athlete Management Principles course will provide students with a critical understanding of the management and coordination of athlete talent within the Australian sport system. An underlying theme of the course is the management of sport careers and support for transition into retirement, and cessation of life as a professional or high performance athlete. From a systems perspective, students will develop an understanding of dual career management and the policies, programs, processes and structures that influence athlete performance, personal development, and transition. Key considerations include the management of personal branding, financial literacy, well-being and behaviour, communication and social media strategies. The role of players association, collective bargaining and player contracts is also a focus of the course. This course is offered: Trimester 2 Gold Coast and Nathan
