Leadership Program

EDSPORA is proud to announce

The USOPC Sport Club Leadership program in response to the growing importance of the sport club environment in offering participation opportunities and developing elite athletes. 

The USOPC has partnered with the University of Delaware, Drexel University and National Governing Bodies to offer a course designed for leaders of local youth sport clubs and organizations so they will further understand the importance of both the management and leadership of an organization as well as the science, theory, and applied practice associated with athlete development that the sport club can provide.
