Oregon Girls Sports Leadership Summit
This event has reached capacity.
Saturday November 23, 2019
9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Oregon Episcopal School
Free Event, Lunch Provided
The Oregon Girls Sports Leadership Summit is excited to announce its fourth annual summit at Oregon Episcopal School. Asking student-athletes to be leaders without preparing them for the responsibility is unfair. Often much is expected of our leaders, but seldom do we intentionally teach them the necessary skills in order for them to succeed.
The OGSLS event was designed to give female student-athletes with an interest in leadership the same instruction, encouragement, and practice that we give athletes before competition. Recommended for all female student athletes in grades 8-12.
The event will be jam-packed! Over the course of the day, we will celebrate the different leadership styles, define our values as individuals, and enjoy a keynote motivational speaker. Past speakers have included Brooke Olzendam from the Portland Trailblazers, Beverly Yanez of the Seattle Reign, and sports broadcaster Ann Schatz. Student-athletes will have the opportunity to "Explore" what it takes to be a leader, “Connect” with their peers, “Commit” to leadership, and “Create” their own leadership style.
This is a free event thanks to our generous sponsors:

It’s Women’s History Month, y’all! I recently got the chance to speak to 400 young women at the Oregon Girls Sports Leadership Summit and let me just say, they inspired ME! The future continues to be bright for women and girls in sports. I LOVE IT! #RipCityStrong #TakeTheLead18 pic.twitter.com/jTFxEPSohJ— Brooke Olzendam (@brookeolzendam) March 26, 2018
