Moving On!: Next Steps for Promoting the Long-Term Health and Well-Being of Student-Athletes

Programs promoting lifestyle physical activity and healthy nutrition among student-athletes are rare despite the potential physical and psychosocial consequences of transitioning out of collegiate sport. To address this critical gap, our research team created Moving On! Program, which assists student-athletes with making healthy transitions to life after college sports through theory-based, cognitive-behavioral strategies that foster positive self-perceptions and motivation for physical activity and healthy eating. In this project, we built on our previous NCAA-funded (2015) research by developing and evaluating additional content and user-friendly resources to enhance the Moving On! program, and promote adoption and sustainability of the program at other institutions.
