The 2016 Athletic Forum will help athletic executives:

  • Develop grit and tenacity within your athletic staff and teams to excel beyond their past performance.
  • Enable administrators, coaches, and athletes to perform at their best by drawing their identity from something bigger than their role.
  • Network with like-minded leaders who are building championship-caliber cultures.
  • Cultivate emotionally healthy young athletes who achieve academic stamina, endure during injuries, and embrace the grind.
  • Recognize the latest trends in young athletes and how staff and coaches can shift their approach and connect with them.
  • Stay updated on new offerings through special breakouts for new and seasoned Habitudes® for Athletes Facilitators.
  • Gain new ideas and best practices on building a culture centered on student athlete success and helping them transition into the professional world that awaits them.
