Any of you lads unironically working towards a career in professional sport?

Training to be a sport psychologist here.
>>
Yes
I started in the academies of Panathinaikos
At the age of 15 I moved to Olympiacos academies
2 years later after a lot of hard work I made it to the starting 11 of the under19 team Olympiacos.
I played in the youth Uefa champions league
It was like I was living in a dream.
2 days later after winning against Anderlecht I got into a car accident on my way to practice , hit my back real hard and that was the end of my career
Sometimes I think suicide is a good option

Sorry to hear that m8, sounds tough. Maybe you should see a sport psychologist to help you with your career transition.

>Already trying to build a client base
>>
No, I would rather not compete for jobs with a bunch of bro-tards willing to work for next to nothing so they can live their dream or whatever.
>>
I've been doing Golden Gloves boxing for nearly ten years, combat sambo for five, and BJJ for four. I think I'm going to try to make a quick career out of doing MMA while I finish my masters.

Also I could heem anyone ITT.

>>64701814
Yikes man. That sucks but with that sort of talent that you had you could at least have some coaching talent or knowledge to give up and comers.

Want a career forever? I'm being serious as a heartattack here.

Try to work with or at least do a long term study of the University of Alabama's football team. Saban fucking loves sports psychology so it wouldn't be a super hard sell, and once your name is attached to that program, you'll forever be rolling in clients.

To give you an idea of how much your life will be ensured, the current governor of the State of Alabama rose to fame because he was Bear Bryant's dermatologist.

test
>>
No, but I get paid part time to count the number of passes and other shit like that for soccer games.

Football is a religion in Alabama

Putting your autism to good use I see.

Yeah its not a bad deal, except I have to watch mlels

I've always been interested in physiology and sports medicine, especially in injury recovery.
But it's such a long way to get there and I'm 22, so I should have started earlier if I seriously wanted to pursue that career.

>>64702355
How'd you get this jerb

>>64702877
It popped up on craigslist

I've been interning with the equipment manager for a ushl team the last 2 years while at cc, have a few connections in the NHL, AHL, and Echl, so hoping once I finish my degree I'll equipment manage in pro hockey somewhere. A lot of hours traveling and not a lot of money though but I'm a biz major so I'll alwys have that to fall back on if I can't take the grind anymore.
>>
>>64702849
at most you are 4 years late, and it's not a career that requires or values youth in any particular way. You can still go for it.
>>
>>64702242
Not sure whether I'd be able to transfer my qualifications over to USA. Afaik your sport psychologists are clinical psychologists who specialise in sport after a 4-year graduate degree. Over here, sport psychologists aren't clinical psychologists - they do a 1-year postgraduate degree, then 2-4 years on-the-job training.

2bh I could probably work over there by calling myself a mental skills coach or some other cowboy title, but I'm not sure whether that would get me a job at a university.

If you are actually kind of interested in something like that, talk with your professors and see if they know anyone across the pond. Work up like a research proposal and if you can find someone with contacts to make introductions lean on them -- otherwise, just start pestering people at where you're interested in trying something. Many times when dealing with international credit transfers, if you can get someone in a department of some school here to sign off on you knowing what you know, you can usually get by without doing anything more than the general legal certification stuff.

How do those academies work? Do you drop out of normal schooling and focus on football?
