Health & Wellbeing
The AJA, together with the principal racing authorities, employs a sports psychologist in each state for the benefit of all jockeys past and present.
This free service is strictly confidential and neither the aja or pra’s are told of the jockeys that visit.
The confidentiality is important to the success of this service.
If you are going through a rough time ( financially, relationships, family, career etc) please pick up the phone and contact the sports pyschologist in your state.
It could be the most important call you make.
