Athlete Leadership Programs equip athletes with the tools to undertake positions of leadership within their community and the broader movement. This allows them to explore opportunities beyond sports training and competition. These leadership roles can include public speaking, being an athlete health advocate, being a part of an Athlete Input Council, being a Peer Mentor, and taking on positions as Board and Committee Members.
