Crossing the Line webinars


An athlete/player’s intense training and competing schedule leaves little time for education and personal development. They spend a lot their time in disparate locations, around the country and often around the world. This can make it hard for teams and clubs to implement consistent personal development and welfare programs, as their athletes or players are rarely available in the same place at the same time. Ironically, this life of an elite athlete means they need this type of program more than most.

We have responded to this need by developing a unique series of performance and wellbeing webinars. These will be available live and on-demand to cater to athletes’ and players’ various schedules and time zones. The webinars have been designed to provide positive and insightful information for everyone involved in a sporting organisation. From athletes and ex-athletes to coaches and administrators, everyone will benefit from the content.

The webinars

We host two webinars per month. Each month has a different theme related to performance, wellbeing, mental health, dual careers and skills for life. The webinars can be viewed live, giving the audience the opportunity to interact with the presenters during dedicated Q&A sessions, or they can be viewed on-demand for up to 6 months after they have been recorded.

Our webinars are hosted by both Crossing the Line and guest experts. We announce the guest speakers for upcoming webinars throughout the year.
