Abstract

Mª Dolores González Fernández y Miquel Torregrosa

In this paper we show the process of leaving the sport activity from the motivation in itself up to the final process of adaptation to a new social reality. Sixty-three former athletes in 10 different sports answered of the questionnaire Retirement from sports (Alfermann, Stambulova and Zemaityte, 2004). Results provide a deeper comprehension of the process of sport retirement related to the academic background, planning of the retirement, strategies used in the process of adaptation or present link to the sport world among other variables. These results will help in the development of coaching programs during and after the sport life to ease the social and working integration once sport life is ended.
