I really enjoyed speaking with high school coaches and athletic directors about bullying in athletics earlier this week at the Section One Leadership Conference. It was my first time speaking with fellow GO! Athletes Board Members Anna Aagenes & Sean Smith (shockingly) and it was a great session. Amazing stories and amazing athletes – it was great to hear their thoughts and bounce around ideas.
I also got to sit in on the athlete panel and hear the stories of Nora, Derek, Mai, and Matt as they talked to high school athletes. There were also sessions on responsible social media use, NCAA eligibility, and overall leadership.
I love events like this where we can really get the buy-in of the people who can help create change in their schools. Shout out to Anthony Nicodemo, who does a tremendous job organizing these events.
