Hello, all,
My name is Lauren Hurt, and I'm the Senior Athlete Representative for Southeastern Swimming. The Athlete's Committee is hosting a virtual Leadership Summit on July 10th, 2021 for swimmers in our LSC aged 13-17
The Leadership Summit will include sessions about:
1.) Leadership Style and Values - exploring personality types and how to use your strengths to become a good leader
2.) LSC Governance - focusing on our LSC governance structure and how athletes & their voice fit into the structure, introducing them to how our Athlete Committee works
3.) DEI - highlighting how athletes can embrace diversity in our LSC and how to foster an environment of growth
4.) Club Leadership - featuring a panel of current/former collegiate athletes and coaches to discuss swimming in college, the importance of leadership, and life lessons
5.) Guest Speakers - AEC members who will discuss their experiences with leadership and the athlete voice in governance, with a Q&A session
The Summit will instill each attendee with leadership characteristics that can be used for life, not just at the pool. Attending the Summit is completely free, and each attendee will receive a Leadership Summit T-shirt. 30 swimmers will be selected based on the quality of their applications. Applications close June 11th and take less than 10 minutes to fill out. Here is the link:
It's extremely important that we get athletes from all types of teams and locations so that this can be the most beneficial to the entire LSC. I strongly encourage you to promote the Summit to your teams to strengthen potential leaders in your club. If you have any questions, you can email them to me at [email protected].
Thank you,
Lauren Hurt
