Student Athlete Leadership Training

The Student Athlete Leadership Training program was designed to develop the leadership skills of our student-athletes and will be facilitated by Ravenscroft administrators and coaches. The student-athletes are nominated by their respective head coaches. The competencies of the Citizen Leader Framework: Leading Self, Leading with Others, and Changing Your World are the core of the leadership model. Discussion topics, breakout sessions, and guest speakers will discuss accountability, self-awareness, resiliency, communication, collaboration and empathy with and for teammates and coaches, in hopes that the Student-Athlete can help their team on and off the playing field.

Quotes from Past Participants

 
   
DJ Washington ’16 Football and Wrestling

"As a captain of state championship football team, a state runner of wrestling team, and student body president, the SALT group was a great place for me to reflect on my leadership skills and how I can further advance my team's accomplishments. Throughout my two years in the SALT program, I started to really focus on myself and how I handled situations. If I was not playing to my full potential and giving it my all each and every day, my teammates would believe that is acceptable. I began to critique myself more than others because I know as the leader if I set the standard of work, everyone else would follow. It was always good to receive inputs from athletes on other teams and understand how they reached success. People rarely talk to other sports teams about how they got to where they are, so the SALT group really helped in that sense too."

 
Daniel Strong ’16 Football, Swimming, Track & Field

"I first came into contact with the Student Athlete Leadership Team my sophomore year when a senior at the time, invited me to a bring a teammate session. I couldn’t form an opinion after just one meeting, but luckily I was nominated by one of my coaches to attend the meetings my junior and senior year. Just as years before, as the season got underway independent of what sport I was playing, I faced constant troubles from my teams. Ranging from poor performances to simple lack of effort, I had exhausted all avenues of solutions to motivate my teammates. The SALT group comforted me that I was not alone in my troubles and other athletes dealt with the same thing. It also allowed me to brainstorm with other top competitors at our school on solutions to common problems on our teams. This helped transfer over into any group led environment even if it was off the field. The members and leaders of SALT helped me hone my leadership skills and become more comfortable taking charge when it’s necessary."
