Player Support Services Limited (PSS), co-founded by Dr. Simon Le Clerc MStJ, is at the forefront of transforming the support landscape for professional, Olympic, and collegiate athletes. With a mission to address the unique challenges athletes face, PSS offers a comprehensive suite of personalized services aimed at enhancing athletes’ and their families’ lives both on and off the field.

At PSS, the mission is clear: to empower athletes by giving them back the control they often lack in the industry. The organization focuses on holistic support encompassing physical and mental well-being, financial literacy, career development, and personal growth. This approach ensures athletes can navigate their professional journeys and life beyond sports with confidence and success.

The services provided by PSS are extensive and tailored to meet the specific needs of each athlete. These include career transition coaching, financial planning and wealth management, sports performance and injury management psychology, resilience training, leadership for coaches, branding and business development, family support, legal services, and more. Each service is designed to offer athletes the tools and guidance necessary to thrive throughout their careers and beyond.

One of the key differentiators of PSS is its personalized and dynamic approach. By collaborating with a global network of experts, PSS provides unparalleled resources and support to its clients. This elite team of professionals, many of whom come from high-performance environments in sports and the military, brings a unique understanding and empathy to their roles. This background allows them to offer tailored, empathetic, and highly effective support systems for athletes.

Dr. Simon Le Clerc’s journey to founding PSS is both compelling and inspirational. Initially competing as a junior at National level, to serving 24 years in the British Army working supporting expeditionary and small unit operations and experiencing severe combat-related PTSD upon his discharge in 2020, Dr. Simon recognized the parallel struggles faced by elite athletes transitioning from their sports careers. His firsthand experiences, coupled with his daughter’s rising career in junior tennis and the ever increasing headlines about talented young athletes taking their own lives, highlighted the urgent need for a comprehensive support system for athletes. Meeting his co-founder, Joe (JJ) Weber, a former swimmer,  lacrosse player and sports performance and injury psychologist, solidified the vision for PSS. Together, they aim to tackle the wider challenges athletes and their families face with a “go big or go home” mentality.

PSS stands out in the industry due to its holistic, athlete-centered approach. Unlike other services that focus solely on one aspect of an athlete’s transition, PSS integrates a wide range of support services. From mental health and psychological resilience to financial literacy and career development, PSS ensures athletes receive well-rounded assistance tailored to their unique needs. This comprehensive and empathetic support ensures that athletes are equipped to navigate their careers and lives with confidence and resilience.

Client testimonials highlight the significant impact PSS has on athletes’ lives. Success stories from various sports disciplines demonstrate how PSS’s expertise helps athletes transition smoothly through different career stages, achieving significant personal and professional growth. These testimonials speak volumes about the personalized, confidential, and effective support provided by PSS.

Awards and recognition further underscore the impact of PSS. Dr. Simon Le Clerc MStJ has been nominated for the Heropreneur of the Year Award, recognizing his exceptional efforts in supporting veterans and athletes alike. He is also a recipient of the prestigious Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Award for innovative approaches in major trauma survival.

PSS’s global impact is also notable. The organization has established partnerships with key business leaders and athletes across the globe, including those in the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, soccer, golf, rugby, tennis and olympians. These partnerships enable PSS to cater to the diverse needs of athletes, ensuring comprehensive support through every phase of their lives from the age of 16 onwards.

The holistic, personalized approach, elite and experienced team, award-winning leadership, global reach, and proven impact set PSS apart from the competition. The organization’s commitment to long-term development and well-being extends beyond immediate needs, focusing on fostering a sense of belonging and continuous support. This dedication ensures athletes transition smoothly into new phases of their lives while maintaining a strong connection to their sports community.
