Atlanta, GA. LEAD Sports Summit is excited to announce the first annual LEAD Parent Track, which will take place on Sunday, September 1 during the 2019 Summit. This brand-new program will include a full day of keynotes for parents on Confidence and Nutrition, as well as breakout sessions on College Recruiting, Sports Psychology and more. These sessions will be led by our Olympian speakers and expert mentors with the help of our Team Leaders.

“I am thrilled to launch the LEAD Parent Track alongside our annual LEAD Summit. Our mission at LEAD is to empower girls and the role models who support them. Our goal is to help LEAD girls become successful as possible, and providing parents with an educational element only strengthens our commitment to our mission,” said LEAD Founder Kara Lynn Joyce.

Registration for the LEAD Parent Track opens on November 17 alongside the 2019 LEAD Sports Summit, which will take place over Labor Day Weekend.

The LEAD Sports Summit is the first 4-day all-inclusive leadership and empowerment summit for teenage female swimmers. Throughout the weekend, LEAD Mentors and Speakers work with participants during group talks, team-building activities, workshops, and small-group, age-specific breakout sessions.  Three-time Olympian Kara Lynn Joyce founded LEAD (Leadership, Empowerment, and Athletic Development) as an opportunity for girls to learn leadership skills from strong, accomplished female mentors. Registration for LEAD opens to all female swimmers, ages 13-18 on November 17. Athletes can register for the event and sign up for the LEAD newsletter through the website:
