Virtual Introduction to Athlete Leadership

December 8, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

  • This event has passed.


Athlete Leadership programs (ALPs) provides training for athletes who wish to expand their role in Special Olympics Missouri to much more than just on the field of competition. Our athletes learn how to achieve success, joy and acceptance on the field of competition, while Athlete Leadership Programs teach them how to achieve those same goals and feel just as empowered while off the field of competition as respected leaders and spokespeople in their communities and where they can make a difference for the organization they love.

Register for our virtual “Introduction to Athlete Leadership” and “Understanding Leadership” courses. These courses are required for ALL athlete leaders to take prior to declaring a major and beginning their coursework.

Taking a virtual “Introduction” class is a great way for new athlete leaders to “test the waters” and make sure that Athlete Leadership is a good fit for them.

This course will be held via zoom.  Athletes must have access to a computer/tablet and internet in order to participate.  If you do not have access to these, please email Alyssa at cress@somo.org and we can try to work something out!
