Student-Athlete Leadership Workshops

The Haverford College athletic department partners with Strive: How You Lead Matters to provide exceptional, comprehensive leadership training to all student-athletes. Strive's workshops which are grounded in a research-based, customizable curriculum are delivered by engaging and seasoned facilitators with collegiate athletic and education backgrounds.  Through intentional programming, student-athletes tackle concepts of leadership styles, motivation, culture creation, and empathy. Student-athletes leave with an increased sense of intrapersonal and interpersonal awareness that allows them to compete at a high level while also serving as more effective players, teammates, captains, and members of the campus community.
