Our first class of The Gotham Girls Leadership Group will begin sessions early this January! After selections are made based on submitted applications, the classes will run once a month from Janurary until June.
The focus of our leadership program is to challenge our athletes to reach their potential as leaders on and off the field. We are looking forward to helping our players learn how to communicate better, bring a team together, organize a group, and altogether lead those around her in a positive and comfortable way by developing their own leaderships styles based on their personalities and strengths. We believe that not enough attention is given to some of these less tangible skill sets that so often define a team and it's players.
Participants will gain confidence through the sessions and brainstorming and have a strong understanding of what it takes to be a leader. They will learn that it is not about being team superstar, a selected captain, or the most vocal member of her team. Whatever her skillset may be, she will learn that in any role on the field or off, she can lead those around her. This is a fantastic next step for our club that will help our players develop not only to be great soccer players and teammates, but impactful leaders within their own lives and communities.
