Transcript of Career Planning

Goal setting short Medium Long S.W.O.T targerts change of club transitions second career planning short term goals are important when setting you career plan, you need to have quick goals that can achieved in a short period of time that will keep you motivated to try and reach the medium and long term goals, for example my short term goal is keeping injury free for the training sessions this month ready for the competition at the end of this month. medium term goals are to give you a boost again after reaching the short term goal and wanting to reach the long term, haing thr medium term goal keeps your confidence up knowing that your that bit closer towrds you long term goal and sometimes dream.An example could be a top level footballers goal of scoring a certain number of goals during the season. long term goals are usual goals that are really to aim for in the future, most likely being your dream for example a footballer playing at premiership level. it is good to have long term goals as it gives you the reasons for trying to achieve the short and medium term goals aswell as a reason to be training as much as you would. An example would be a young rugby player in a youth academy team finally reaching there goal of playing in the first team. opp while participating in your sport you should always have a second career plan, this is something that you can fall back on just incase you have an injury or event that leaves you unable to participate in your sport.

an example of a second career plan could be being a coach for the sport that you do or personal trainer. Positives the positives of having a second career plan is that you will have something that you will be able to do if a situation occurs, also this can be something that you have always wanted to do or be apart from a performer but the sport has come first Negaitves The negatives of having a second career plan is that what you may want to do you might not be able to get easily due to qualifications needed, however your experience in your sport may help if your second career alternitive is based around this. Example. An example could be Sergey Kotlyarov, he is now a Gymnastics high performance coach after injuring himself at a competetion at a young age, his second career plan was already undergoing while he was competeing as he was taking his coaching courses whenever possible. so when his injury occured and he recovered, he went straight into finding a club to coach for. changing club can have a big impact on your reputation in the sport that you are performing because of the negativity that you may recieve from your supporters if leaving your club that you have been with for a long period of time and maybe even a short period of time when playing well, however there are some positives of leaving your club for another. when joining a different club you will be able to have a fresh start and try to right any wrongs that you had at your previous club.

Positives the positives of leaving your old club. start afresh
more game play
new team mates
new supporters
Negatives negatives of changing club old supporters take a dislike to you
gain respect for the club
Career Planning a change in coach can have many effects on you as a perfromer, there are many positives and negatves from changing coaches, but they depends upon what your relationship is like with your coach to whether it is positive or negative Positives
having a new coach can boost your confidence if your last coach was not good
a new coach could teach you new skills that the previous coach did not teach
you can start fresh with the new coach, making a good friendship to help perfrom
Negtives having a new coach could damage your confidence
the friendship with the previous coach would be broken
the new coach may teach you skills that you are learning or have already learned a different way, making it confusing Contingencies
Illness, Accident and Permenant injury there are many situations were you could become injured while playing your sport, some injuries you can revover from quite quickly and others could put you out of sport for the rest of your life S = Strengths W = weaknesses weaknesses that you have need to be found in your sport so that they can try and be developed, by doing this you can only get better as you can come up with practices that can be used to improve.
what are your strengths?
how can they be used to improve your weaknesses

when using SWOT targets you must note down all the strengths you have, why they are strengths and how to maintain them or even improve them O = 0ppertunities during your career you may find many oppertunites that can help you improve and progress, such a moving to a different club, training camps. decisions need to be made to make the right oppertunity to lead you in the right direction to success T = threats There are many threats that can occur while ongoing in your sporting carrer, threats such as losing your place in a squad due to injury or lack of performance Example Dean Ashton eventually had to end his career in football after he suffered an injury, it was said that if he carried on playing he may be at risk of ending up in a wheelchair.

some injuries are very minor and could leave you out of the squad for a certain amount of time to recover, however when you have fully recoverd it is possible that you may have to work your way back into the team as your position may have been taken by another player By Ryan Cleaver Key Review dates this links into goal setting as they are stages that are set times when a performer will review their performances sice the last key review date, from there they will then set new targets and goals that can help them improve Main career plan & expectations as an athlete you will have many expectations, such as acheiving a certain rank or level in your sport. these expectations should grow bigger the longer you stay at the club as you will gain more experience and knowledge. however, trying to achieve a high career role in sport can be very difficult and you should not aims for a career that you know you will sruggle getting to. for example if you are a sunday leauge rugby, with the mates, maybe for a bit of a laugh, you would expect to end up playing rugby in the guiness premier league as your career. An example could be jose mourinho, he moved to inter milan after leaving chelsea and lead them to succesful run in the champions league beating chelsea in the first knock out round. Achieving national & international status if you achieve your goal of reaching a national or international level then it is important that you maintain this standard and start to improve so you stay playing at this high level, more training and hard work is needed so that you stay on form and no other player can knock you out of your position. if you do not maintain your national or international status then this could make big changes to your career plan and which direction or route you wish to go down all of these aspects that have been talked about must be considerd when choosing a sports career plan, it is very benificial incase things dont go your way, and can act as a motivator because you know that you have something to fall back on in any emergency. Are there any questions? Thankyou for your time
