About After the Game

Millions of former NCAA student-athletes live and work in communities across the United States and around the world. They work in every profession with many serving as leaders and volunteers.

We are proud of all former NCAA student-athletes, and in recognition of their accomplishments after their playing days, we launched NCAA After the Game. Our goal is simple: to celebrate the former student-athlete.

NCAA After the Game uses compelling texts and videos to highlight what former NCAA student-athletes are doing now. One of the initiative’s key features is a career center tailored to promote connections between former NCAA student-athletes and employers interested in hiring them. Former student-athletes seeking jobs at all levels can post their resumes, look for job opportunities and get advice on how to land the job they are seeking.
