In the first set of images from the athlete leadership program, student athletes learn how to lead themselves well by developing strong character, self-discipline, personal values, responsibility, initiative, self-esteem, time management, and a healthy support network.
Themes covered in the second series of images teach practical ways for athletes to develop strong relationships with their teammates, resolve conflict, and create a team culture.
The third component of the student-athlete leadership program focuses on major leadership principles, including setting the vision for the team, setting goals, leading effective teams, handling criticism, and leveraging your influence to positively impact others on the team.
Images from the fourth series are specifically designed to give student-athletes tools to navigate the critical junctions of life. This includes handling transitions that occur as part of their sport, as well as those in life after school.
