An Athlete's Circle of Support - What It Is And Does It Help Athletes To Reach Greater Heights

An athlete's success is not just predicted on their will, drive and determination, but also the support they decide to surround themselves with.

The athlete's circle of support is critical at all stages of their journey. It's a group of individuals with a specialised skillset to help develop the athlete in varying ways.

It's what can lead them on the path of success with the right people and resources at their disposal.

It's the glue that holds the athlete together through the highs and lows to keep them on the right track.

Every successful athlete has had some circle of support, for example: King James with his mum, trainers, coaches, physical therapists, Obama (yes, he spoke to him during the 2020 season) etc.

The circle of support provides individualised support to best suit the athlete. This is done via coaching, calls, email/text, manual therapy, planning sessions, training sessions etc. They should also communicate with one another as this provides the best possible opportunity for long-term and sustained success.

To be successful, you really need these skilled people:

  • Sports Coach
  • Mentor
  • Strength and Conditioning Coach
  • Physio or Osteo
  • Psych or Counsellor
  • Nutritionist or Dietician; and
  • Parents involved

And we're not saying you need all of them at one time, but at different stages of your career.

No athlete becomes successful on their own. They surround themselves with a support network for success. Even Lebron James has mentors around him!

So who are you surrounding yourself with to help you with your progress? Contact us today if you would Inner Athlete to be part of your support circle.
