E-Learning Programs for Developing Workforce-Ready NCAA Student-Athletes

The Big South Conference is one of many conferences of the NCAA. As a Division I conference with 11 current member institutions, the Big South Conference holds a role in the NCAA and aims to promote the highest level of intercollegiate sports. The Big South Conference values align strongly with Leaders of Evolution’s values. The Big South Conference is “dedicated to developing student-athletes through the pursuit of excellence in the classroom, community and field of play.”

Leaders of Evolution’s partnership offers intercollegiate athletes the opportunity to participate in online leadership courses that strive to develop student-athletes in their athletic life and prepare them for the workforce. These leadership courses for students and athletes are designed for young, emerging, and workforce-ready leaders. As college students are just a few years away from the workforce, whether that be pursuing a professional athletic career or a career outside of sports, starting a partnership with us is a great experience for all.

Big South Conference | Leaders of Evolution

The headquarters for the Big South Conference is in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the 11 current institutions are all located within North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. However, there are also associate members in Alabama, Georgia, and New Jersey. When the conference was first established in 1983, it did not include football. However, as of 2002, the Big South Conference began to sponsor football for the Football Championship Subdivision. By 2021, the conference is expected to add two more members: North Carolina AT&T State University and Robert Morris University. 

There are currently 9 men’s sports and 10 women’s sports offered across the members of the conference. Like other conferences in the NCAA, The Big South Conference has programs put in place to encourage leadership development and student-athlete success. Similarly, we, at Leaders of Evolution, have created online leadership courses for students. 

Leaders of Evolution

While we offer our own online leadership courses that focus on student-athletes in high school, we also have Hub Partnership programs for colleges and conferences. These partnership programs allow the institution to fully-customize online leadership courses that align directly with the organization’s values and goals. All it takes is 5 easy steps to be completed in just a short amount of time.

Step 1: Consult and Collaborate

By gathering information from the organization through an online survey, focus group, or one-to-one interview, Leaders of Evolution can gauge what is important to the organization and what goals this customized course can achieve.

Step 2: Customize & Engage

Our IT and development teams will then create a 3-month curriculum, unless otherwise specified, that will be functional and implement the strategies that were discussed in the collaboration step. 

Step 3: Design & Develop

Then, we will include some important content from our other courses such as learning the 4 C’s Leadership Framework in order to create a full program that educates students on a variety of topics. 

Step 4: Deliver & Educate

Next, we will launch the program and educate the institution on how to spread the program to its students, staff, and other athletic administrators. This program will come with over 20 courses and will be good to use for 3 years.

Step 5: Observe & Adapt

Finally, our team will be able to measure student’s progress throughout the course material and we will analyze how effective the program was so that we can continue to make our partnerships better for the future. 

So what are you waiting for? If you are an institution or conference that wants to better educate your athletes on leadership, our Hub Partnership Program is guaranteed to give you athletes the skills they need to be successful in the workforce.
