The Leadership Academy is an in-depth 10 month program where you will (1) learn leadership and interpersonal skills that will make you a stronger leader, teammate and friend; (2) meet other female high school athletes from different schools and make friendships that will stay with you throughout high school and beyond; (3) grow your resume as you start to think about applying to college; (4) participate in service opportunities; (5) have a ton of fun and SO MUCH MORE!
The Leadership Academy is a year-long commitment during your sophomore year of high school. We will meet in-person once a month from August - June. Sessions will be held on Sunday afternoons, but depending on activity and availability times may be adjusted. There will also be other opportunities to connect with the members of your cohort and your adult mentors. If selected to be a part of the Academy, it is our expectation that you will attend the monthly sessions. IF YOU FEEL YOU CANNOT MAKE THE TIME COMMITMENT, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY.
