The Coaching Academy Leadership Summit hosted distinguished professionals from athletic and administrative career fields. Through the sharing of knowledge and experiences, those working in athletics had an increased understanding of their roles, responsibilities and opportunities as leaders working with students, athletes and coaches. By exposing students to real world, everyday professionals within the various athletic domains, we are “coaching” the future of athletic and administrative careers.
