Winter Quarterly

Our morning session will focus on the importance of branding as a tool to grow public awareness for your facilities and drive program enrollment. We will discuss the key principles of a strong brand and how to use that brand to build a connection to the public. After a quick break, we will resume on ZOOM to discuss how the landscape for vetting and training youth coaches has changed. Topics will include how legislation (ex: Safe Sport Act) affects coaches and what actions departments can take to address the growing risk faced in offering youth sports programs.
