From June 1-4 2017, Athlete Assessments’ Bo Hanson will be speaking about what it takes to be ‘Athlete Tough‘ at Camp Elevate – a summer camp for creative, innovative and “people-first” Coaches who are committed to their personal and professional development beyond the X’s and O’s of their sport.
Bo’s session covers what it takes to be ‘Athlete Tough’ and is a practical guide on how coaches can develop resiliency in their athletes, as part of their everyday program. It is based on the premise that mental toughness is not a mythical quality possessed by a select few, but instead that it is a teachable skill. Being ‘Athlete Tough’ is defined by the actions you take when your performance matters the most and Bo will share proven strategies to develop athletes to be ‘Athlete Tough’.
True North Founder Celia Slater said that camp Elevate would provide a unique learning for Coaches.
“Camp Elevate is a growing movement of Coaches across ALL sports who believe in the power of collaboration and community,” Celia said.
So who is Camp Elevate for?
The Camp Elevate program is a good fit for:
- Any head or assistant coach at any level.
- Any Coach who is serious about making coaching their professional career.
- Any coach who wants to improve as a manager, leader and communicator.
- Any coach who enjoys collaborating and sharing ideas.
- All coaches who are interested in learning creative and innovative ways to connect with people, especially their athletes and create a positive team culture.
- Coaches that are interested in finding a “tribe” of coaches from ALL sports they can rely on for support and ideas as they move through their career.
Camp Elevate will take place from June 1-4 at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan.
