School is back in session

The school season has begun and the Athletic Director of our district led off with the Captain's Academy for Student-Athlete Leadership. This is a great concept and the AD, along with his staff, should be applauded for their efforts. The Captain's Academy objective is to develop captains and leaders of sports teams who serve as positive leaders and role models for those around them.

The Captain's Academy worked on three main themes. 1)How to communicate with coaches? 2) What is the student-athlete experience? How to handle adversity as a leader? 3) How to deal with Code violations as a team?

We wish them continued success in their on going efforts in opening communications with the players, coaches, and the Athletic Director.
