Athletic Leadership Track

  • June 11-16, 2023

The Athletic Leadership program for high school students is built for teens who are planning to be captains of their sports team. A good captain has the power to transform the culture of a team – for better or for worse. Teens will learn how to be successful leaders to create an environment that breeds success, without ignoring their Catholic faith and morals.

This track will feature a number of guest speakers who have experience in sports leadership from a Catholic perspective to give young leaders well rounded and practical ways that they can take on leadership on their sports teams with integrity.
