Athlete Leadership Summit

NES Office

The New England Swimming Athlete Reps, along with the Athletes Executive Committee, are excited to announce we will be hosting an Athlete Leadership Summit this fall! The goal of this summit is to provide a number of our high school athletes with the opportunity to work with their fellow athletes across the LSC to develop leadership skills and tools. Participating athletes will also learn more about the governance that forms the backbone of New England Swimming, including the Board of Directors, operating committees, and athlete involvement. Our hope is that through this summit we are preparing the next leaders of our LSC as well as for their respective communities.
