LEADERSHIP AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT THROUGH ATHLETICS - with Trevor Tierney
In the U.S. culture, one of the more promising environments for ushering young men and women into adulthood is collegiate athletics. Sports allow student-athletes to engage themselves in a physical practice, cultivate their strengths, witness their weaknesses, and learn in a controlled setting about success and failure. However, many athletes focus on a very shallow aspect of this experience—mainly, winning and losing. Yet, sports can mean so much more than this in athletes’ lives. As the majority of college athletes do not end up playing professionally, there is a great need to explicitly develop generalizability and sustainability in sports—on-field lessons should be taken into the real world, encouraging athletes to create lasting change for the common good in society.

SOCRATES, SPORTS AGENTS & ME with Drew Mearns

Summary: By exploring what philosophers have called “the good, the true and the beautiful” in the context of his 50+ years in the sport of distance running, Drew Mearns, a master coach, teacher, and former sports agent, will reflect on “growing runners” – words that describe both his passion & profession and also the young champions in his programs.  in this breakout session, you will:  (1) hear stories and lessons that Coach Mearns learned during his career as agent and attorney for Olympic and world record setting athletes and while coaching serious runners; (2) learn how to incorporate certain proven sport-training principles into your own programs; and (3) take home with you from the session three very specific and practical transformational "tools" that coaches, parents, and athletes can put to work in your own practice or your parenting/coaching, to improve and enhance sport performance, enjoyment and learning. Coach Mearns’lessons, principles, and practical tools will help you in whatever sport you enjoy, coach or compete in.

Takeaways: Assessment tools (mental & physical) for athletes of all ages and sports, practice worksheets, and a resource/reading guide for in-depth followup.
