Jun 5, 2020 (09:00 AM) - Jun 5, 2020 (04:00 PM)
March, 7 2020


Your LSC leaders (Jake Simmons, Addy Morgan, Summer Cheng, and Ethan Evans) will be hosting a Leadership Summit here in Anchorage! 
—Who: Up to 20 athletes from around the state will be accepted, you must be in High School next year to participate. Jake and Addy also plan to fly a special guest from the Lower 48 up to help run this event. **NOTE: We plan to reimburse up to $50 per car coming from Fairbanks/Peninsula and up to $100 per athlete flying in from South East/Kodiak** 
—What: A Leadership Summit (Community Service Project and In-Water Session included)  to guide athletes on how to be better leaders in Alaska and USA Swimming, and in the community. This is a great opportunity to get a taste of how the “dry-side” of the sport works, along with gaining new leadership skills and getting advice from USA Swimming Representatives. Our goal is to provide athletes with these skills to carry into their club teams, LSCs, and even on to the National Level.
—When/ Where: June 5th, 2020 from 9:00am-4:00pm at the YMCA in Anchorage 
—Why: A great opportunity to go out of your comfort zone and expand your knowledge on how USA and Alaska Swimming is run! You will receive a “swag bag” of summit goodies, a work book, snacks/lunch, AND be put in to a drawing to win a new tech suit at the end of the day!!
