Limited Capacity seats available

Elements of identity – gender, race, sexuality, culture – have been a longstanding, salient force in the history of sport. Research suggests that athletic programming which supports elements of a youth’s identity helps foster the positive social-emotional and developmental outcomes that can be achieved through engaging in physical activity and play. This session will explore leadership strategies that recognize, celebrate, and support the individual identities of participants, creating physically and emotionally safe spaces that increase engagement and boost retention. We will discuss how coaches and activity directors can engage in implicit and explicit leadership behaviors that enhance student feelings of belonging and empowerment through recognition of culture, background, and community.
