Abstract: This study evaluated the content, quality, access, and delivery of the Australian Athlete Career and Education (ACE) Program. Employing both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, levels of usage of the program, overall satisfaction with the services provided, and athletes' suggestions for the future were assessed. Results revealed that more than 70% of eligible athletes utilized the program's services within a 12-month timeframe, and that the most used services were career planning, educational guidance, and selected professional development courses. Reasons for using the ACE Program were also found to relate to enhancing the athletes' lives both inside and outside of sport. Overall, the athletes were found to be satisfied with the quality of the services provided by the program. Specific targeting of programs based on age and sport is recommended.
