TEAMS Leadership Sessions

Registered TEAMS competitors at the upcoming national TSA conference have the opportunity to attend an optional TEAMS leadership session scheduled on Wednesday, June 22nd. Two identical sessions will be offered on that day. This 90 minute free session is based on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership which are the basis of The Student Leadership Challenge

Each session will consist of an overview of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership followed by a leadership game where the students will apply these practices while solving a problem. Team members of the top three teams at each session will receive a prize. Note: teams will be assigned randomly so that students will have the opportunity to interact with students from other schools and geographic areas.

Participation is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Online sign-up will open on Tuesday, May 30th and is only being advertised to TEAMS participants. TEAMS coaches who have registered a team for the national conference may use the Leadership Sign Up link that will be active on the TEAMS national conference page at 2:00PM on Tuesday, May 30th*.
