Girls from NY to Hawaii Register for LEAD
Over the past two weeks, teenage girls all over the country from New York to Hawaii have signed up for the LEAD Summit this September. LEAD is the first summit designed specifically for teenage girls, giving them access to the top female leaders in our sport. Each girl will come away from LEAD with the experience of being empowered by other girls and women.
Special Guest Announcement Coming Soon!
In six days, we will announce our Special Keynote Speaker and Mentor for LEAD - we cannot wait! She represented Team USA with both LEAD founder Kara Lynn Joyce and LEAD Mentor Elizabeth Beisel... Stay tuned for the official reveal!
Christen Shefchunas is an author, professional confidence coach, and former Division I swim coach. She has worked with numerous athletes and Olympians, helping them find their confidence from within.
As a LEAD Summit mentor, Christen will work with participants on handling fear and pressure, teaching them about the truth of mental toughness, and helping them to create a life where confidence can thrive.
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.
