The 2015 Student-Athlete Leadership Conference sponsored by the Allstate Foundation is ready to rock it out on Wednesday, 8/5 at North County HS in Anne Arundel County. Be part of the conversation on Twitter at #SALConf15. Check in for preregistered participants will begin at 8:00 a.m., followed by the opening general session for all attendees at 8:30 a.m. The event will conclude by 4:00 p.m.
The conference will feature nationally recognized motivational speakers, including former Maryland high school athlete Rayna Dubose. In addition, statewide athletic administrators will be facilitating workshops for approximately 400 student-athletes from over 130 of Maryland’s public high schools. The goal of the conference is to develop student leadership skills that enhance sportsmanship, promote teamwork, time management, perspective, inclusion, healthy lifestyle and community service. These positive values have been well-documented through research as benefits of participating in interscholastic athletics.
All 400 student-athletes will participate in workshop sessions with athletic administrators and national speakers. In addition, The Arrive Alive Tour sponsored by the Allstate Foundation will be on hand featuring a distracted driving education program that allows students to experience the dangers of texting while driving within the controlled environment of an automobile simulator.
