NCAA Women Coaches Academy’s 4-day educational training program.

Athlete Assessments will once again be attending the NCAA Women Coaches Academy’s 4-day educational training program in Denver, Colorado (June 1st- June 4th) and Washington, DC (June 27th – June 30th) with Liz Hanson presenting sessions on DISC, Knowing Your Values, and Communication Strategies.

Following in the footsteps of Mission QLD Firebirds Head Coach Roselee Jencke who traveled from Australia to attend the Women Coaches Academy conference with Liz in 2015, this year, Tara Steel from Touch Football Australia will travel to the Washington program as a participant.

Liz_hs“Being part of the WCA is an absolute highlight of my year and each Academy brings together an exceptional group of coaches. We use the CoachDISC Profile in a number of sessions and also do a unique segment on their personal values. As a facilitator, it’s both exciting and rewarding to work with such a passionate and committed group of women and I find that I leave each Academy having learnt just as much from the coaches as I have shared.”
