  1. Cindy said the only way to describe retirement on a sport was almost like the loss of a lifelong friend
    Sydney stated that she had to give herself Grace to deal with the wave emotions in the length of time it took for her to accept retirement
    The woman I am today was because of the values I learned in sport
    Sports help create a natural leadership ability
    Husband was a great support system when Sydney felt like she had no purpose he simply said just put one foot in front of the other
    What comes out of challenging situations can be very rewarding
    During transition, it's important for athletes to know what resources are available and encourage use of those
