Try Our Athlete Development Professional Certification Program for Stronger Leaders

Our professional athlete development program focuses on sports-specific learning and leadership. We save teachers time enhancing leadership capacity and life skills. Our Emerging Leaders in Sport courses and tailored collegiate courses (as shown in the video below) have been designed to provide aspiring athletes with the knowledge and tools to be effective leaders on and off the field of competition. Athletes will investigate areas such as self-awareness, high performing teams, culture, communication and more as they strive to add skills to their leadership toolkit and become a more effective leader in their school, club and representative teams.

Our Co-founder, Jon Shepherd worked closely with San Francisco State University Gators Head Coach, Vince Inglima to design a bespoke blended learning leadership program for his team.
