The course is scheduled for the 25th to 27th of June in Philadelphia, PA.

The course is designed to give student athletes that extra edge before entering collegiate athletics. Among the topics discussed are Basics of Leadership and Professional Development. The course also includes areas such as Career Development, which highlights often forgotten and valuable lessons in public speaking, resume writing and networking. The course will be comprised of panels, discussions and group work.
