Since 2017, we have activated more than 50 events in markets across the country. We have seen almost 10,000 young people register to become built to lead, hungry to take their ability to the next level. Now, we host events focusing on six sports: basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, football, wrestling, and soccer. In 2019, the USMC Sports Leadership Academy is stronger than ever.
Elite coaches in the area train the athletes, and members of the United States Marine Corps impart leadership traits on them so they can become that leader on their team. Our goal was to create an event that would promote that physical preparedness and leadership training, but what we didn’t quite anticipate was just how meaningful these events are and how much impact they have on these young athletes.
