Atlanta, GA. LEAD Sports Summit is thrilled to launch the inaugural LEAD Coaches Track, which will take place on Sunday, September 1 during the 2019 Summit. Club, high school, and college coaches are all invited to register for a full day of keynotes, seminars, collaborative activities, and team building exercises. These educational and interactive sessions will cover topics that include Confidence, Sports Psychology, Leadership, and Nutrition and will be led by LEAD speakers, expert mentors, and Team Leaders. One of the highlights of the LEAD Coaches Track will be an exclusive networking lunch and panel with special guest speakers on Finding Balance as a Coach.


“First and foremost, our mission is to serve the young female athletes in the sport of swimming by giving them the tools they need to thrive as leaders of all types. This year, wanted to expand our programming to include tracks for both parents and coaches to provide an opportunity for the most well-rounded leadership environment possible.” said LEAD Founder Kara Lynn Joyce.

Registration for the LEAD Coaches Track is open now, alongside the 2019 LEAD Sports Summit and LEAD Parents Track, which will take place over Labor Day Weekend. The LEAD Coaches Track is open to female and male swim coaches at all levels who are inspired and motivated to create environments for young female athletes to thrive as students, athletes, and people.

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:
