For my Game Plan project, I reached out to almost 80 newly carded athletes at the CSIC. I shared how GamePlan helped me through my career and transition, and I offered to meet with them to see how GamePlan could fit into their training plan.
I also reached out to Cycling Canada and shared my message with the coaches there. I wasn’t able to connect one-on-one with as many athletes as I had hoped, but I hope that by hearing about Game Plan from an athlete, other athletes will start to see how valuable it is. Sometimes promoting Game Plan felt like an uphill climb. I had to remember that athletes have so many competing demands, and so little energy to sort through them. I hope that by reaching out I was able to plant a seed, and when they need support they will know where to look.
