Leadership Retreats

The mission of the Athletic Leadership Retreat is to enable and encourage the leaders of our athletic programs to use their gifts and talents to shape the culture of their teams in a way that supports and reflects the mission of our school. Students and coaches will be given time and space to learn more about our "Crusaders Culture Code", evaluate their teams traditions, set goals for the season and for themselves, identify other leaders to help grow their program, and set a theme for the season to help push their goals forward. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn more about leadership, grow in their faith, and build relationships with other athletes within our program.
