The NCAA Women Coaches Academy has its third program for the year in Denver this December and Liz Hanson will be one of the staff again.
“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.”
Liz will be presenting three sessions on DISC, Knowing Your Values, and Communication Strategies.
Mission QLD Firebirds Head Coach Roselee Jencke will also be travelling from Australia to attend with Liz. This will cap off a stellar 2015 season for Coach Jencke, after being named the ANZ Championship Coach of the Year, and with the Firebirds becoming the 2015 ANZ Champions.
