The vision of the 2nd Phase Foundation is to develop athletes from middle school up to the professional ranks for life after sports. Our primary focus will be academic enrichment and career development. Providing the necessary resources to solve the problems that will arise as our athletes progress through life. We also have additional focus on giving back to the local community, while promoting safety, stressing the importance of academic success, and athletic achievement.

The Founder

Rory Nixon, President, and Founder of the 2nd Phase Foundation. Being an athlete for the majority of his life, Rory has had the privilege of seeing the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to sports careers and transitioning to life after.


"God has blessed me with the ability to play sports and family support to understand the importance of academics. 

That kind of encouragement propelled me to become a graduate, with honors, from Saint Augustine University, Raleigh NC in 2013. As a professional athlete, achieving success, entering corporate America and holding various positions are a few of my many priorities."

Rory Nixon


How We Help

It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference
Monthly Career Development

(Middle School-High School)

This program is designed to help middle and high school student athletes get and stay on the right track. The objective of the monthly development is to ensure student athletes are completing the necessary tasks in order to successfully enroll in college or prepare for the workforce post high school.

Six Week Training Course

(College-Professional Athletes)

The six week training program will be a crash course to see where the athletes are in their current career. Here at 2nd Phase, we would like to visit different universities and professional organizations to work directly with the athletes. Once the course has been completed, our end goal is to know our athletes have a plan in place in order to have a successful life once playing sports is no longer an option.
