2022 Oregon Girls Sports Leadership Summit
Developing Winning Learners and Leaders 
Saturday, May 7th 2022
9am - 3pm
at Oregon Episcopal School 
Registration limited to the first 500 
***click HERE to register for this FREE summit*** 
We're back and we're LIVE IN PERSON!  The annual Oregon Girls Sports Leadership Summit is so excited to announce its return for the fifth year in a row. The OGSLS was designed to give female student-athletes with an interest in leadership the same emphasis on instruction, encouragement, and practice that we give athletes before asking them to compete. Asking student-athletes to be leaders without preparing them for the responsibility is unfair. Often, much is expected of our leaders, but seldom do we intentionally teach them the necessary skills in order for them to succeed. This amazing opportunity is recommended for all female student-athletes in grades 9-12 and is sure to be an exciting, jam-packed event! Over the course of the day we will celebrate the history of Title IX, enjoy keynote motivational speakers, and collaborate in break-out sessions that will include hot button topics like... Defining my leadership style, What are my values as a leader? and Where will sports help take me in my future?  Students will  “Explore” what it takes to be a leader, “Connect” with their peers, “Commit” to leadership, and “Create” their own leadership style. This (free of charge) summit WILL fill up fast and we're limited to 500, so hurry and act now!  Register HERE
