PROFESSIONAL SPORTS CLUB, GOVERNING BODY OR ASSOCIATION?
If so, you’ve come to the right place. LAPS offers support to professional sports clubs, governing bodies and player associations in a number of ways. We already work with clubs across a range of sports and levels, as well as having strong partnerships with governing bodies and player unions, and we are actively seeking out new partnerships.
Like you, we believe we have a duty of care to support sports professionals throughout their careers and beyond, and we are always working to expand the opportunities available for our partners and our members.
By working with LAPS, you and your members benefit from plenty of different opportunities:
Membership is 100% free to anyone who is, or was, an elite athlete or sports professional. We can provide you a link to share with your athletes that will give them instant, free access to LAPS, where they benefit from all the advice, career resources, events and job opportunities we have to offer. No catches, no obligations.
We run a range of workshops in partnership with clubs and organisations, such as our highly successful Play It Forward series in collaboration with the Premier League, which you can find out more about here.
Workshops are designed for your players or members to help them understand the importance of planning ahead, as well as help them to prepare for a new career after sport, without interfering with their sports career. If you’d like to have a chat about how we can help deliver workshops for you, please get in touch.
We can run career events on your behalf, giving sportspeople and potential employers an invaluable opportunity to connect and gain insights into different sectors.
We’ve worked on numerous events on various scales, including Athlete Futures, in partnership with UK Sport/EIS which attracted several hundred attendees across a series of nationwide events, providing a fantastic opportunities for sportspeople, businesses and support organisations to learn more about each other and make new connections. We also run events with football clubs to help highlight to youth teams and academies the importance of planning ahead.
Our event managers ensure it all goes smoothly on the day. Our relationships with businesses guarantee a wide range of potential employers attending and events often attract significant media coverage as well, so there are plenty of advantages for all involved.
