Oregon Girls Sports Leadership Summit
We're back and we're LIVE IN PERSON! The annual Oregon Girls Sports Leadership Summit is so excited to announce its return for the fifth year in a row. The OGSLS was designed to give female student-athletes with an interest in leadership the same emphasis on instruction, encouragement, and practice that we give athletes before asking them to compete.
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. This amazing opportunity is recommended for all female student-athletes in grades 9-12 and is sure to be an exciting jam-packed event!
Over the course of the day we will celebrate the history of Title IX, enjoy two incredible keynote speakers, Edniesha 'Eddie' Curry (Asst. Coach Portland Trail Blazers) and Ann Schatz (a true Pioneer of Sports Broadcasting), participate in a Q&A panel of Professional/Div. 1 athletes, and work collectively in break-out sessions that will include hot button topics like: Defining my leadership style. What are my values as a leader? And, Where will sports help take me in my future? Students will “Explore” what it takes to be a leader, “Connect” with their peers, “Commit” to leadership, and “Create” their own leadership style.
This (free of charge) summit WILL fill up fast and we're limited to 500, so hurry and act now!

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
