Summit Updates & San Antonio Appearance
Last week, we announced Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin as our Special Guest Mentor, and we hope you are just as excited as we are! Over 40 girls from across the country have already signed up for the first ever LEAD SportsSummit - more than half of the 70 available spaces. With the all-star lineup of speakers and mentors, our attendees are in for a fun and impactful weekend!
From June 23-25, LEAD Founder Kara Lynn Joyce will be attending the George Block Invitational in San Antonio, Texas to talk to parents and swimmers about the LEAD experience and other exciting LEAD events that we will be able to share with you soon. Stay tuned for more information!
Jennifer Brunelli is a former National Team and NCAA All-American swimmer from the University of South Carolina. She is currently the dietician for the NFL's Carolina Panthers and works with several other sports teams and athletes of all levels. Her passion has always been empowering young female swimmers to take control of their nutrition in order to fuel their bodies best for swimming and for life.
Working with Jenn, attendees will learn how to fuel pre- and post-workout, individualized fluid intake to promote lower injury risk, and meal frequency and changing your body through diet and macronutrients. Jenn's combined background in swimming and nutrition makes her a perfect fit for our LEAD squad!
Empowering young girls and women is a movement we strive to take part in each and every day. In the Leadership Corner, we spotlight important stories on girls and women who inspire us.
