Leaders of Excellence and Athletic Pride (LEAP) 2019

LEICESTER, Mass. – This past Sunday (Mar. 3), 21 student-athletes participated in Leaders of Excellence and Athletic Pride (LEAP) at Becker College. LEAP is a leadership program designed for sophomore student-athletes for whom their coaches or athletic administrators nominated because they believe they can be future leaders on their teams.


They covered topics including challenges of being a leader, DiSC assessment, leadership styles, core values, personal branding, and bystander training.


This group did an outstanding job. "Their conversations proved to me that our teams will continue to have strong leaders in the upcoming years," said Assistant Athletic Director, Andrea Belis. "They had discussions about the challenges they will face and helped each other figure out how to handle them. This continues to be my favorite program every year and it is because of our outstanding student-athletes."
