|Abstract||This study will share the results of a study of the student-athlete experience, especially focusing on post competition experience. The design of the study was based on the theoretical work of student development theorists, NCAA data and identity foreclosure studies. Student-athletes were invited to engage in the research study where they shared their experiences before, during and, if applicable, after college. From the study, it became clear that student-athletes, without exception, suffered from “identity foreclosure" when their athletic career ended. Based on the findings of the study, recommendations have been developed for the athletes, coaches, other athletic department personnel and university staff. This research will share the results of the study while also sharing the recommendations for methods of lessening the impact of identity foreclosure for student-athletes.|
