“The coaches were super nice and taught me a lot of things. I liked watching the videos about athlete leaders and how they push their team to play the best that they can play.”
During the early weeks of quarantine orders all over the United States, a leadership program for girl’s lacrosse players was born from the ideas and action taken by dozens of college coaches who wanted to reimagine the experience young people get as members of sports teams before they get on college campuses. Before they take their places in communities as adults.
LIT4Women’s mission is to develop the kind of humans we need leading us off the fields and courts. We use sports analogies, images, anecdotes, and the lessons gained from successes and failures to draw out what program participants already have in themselves. We help them extract, develop, and hone the skills and qualities they need to self-assess, make change, withstand adversity, and keep growing on and off the field for the rest of their lives.
LIT4Women is for those who want to lead as women, or who want to be a part of the village that supports girls, women, and those who identify as female as they move through their journey to make a positive impact on the world.
As of September 2020, programs are available for middle school and high school aged girl’s lacrosse players. In coming months and years, other sports will be added to the scope of programming currently being offered. A key component to the curriculum is a short period of instruction in the technical skills of a specific sport, or a fitness station that provides participants with exercises to do in their daily lives.
LIT4Women programs help people strengthen their leadership muscles by weaving together the powerful threads of SPORTS and LIFE.
