Laureus Virtual Training Camp

#LaureusVirtualCamp

Thank you to the over 750 individuals who joined our Virtual Camps over the past 8 weeks. We are working on a plan to launch a second round of Laureus Virtual Camps and will be sharing that with our audience shortly. In the meantime please see below for summaries of our first 8 sessions.

Overview and Purpose

While the CDC and other leading health organizations have encouraged social distancing and closures throughout the country, we are mindful that social distancing does not mean social isolation. As a leader and convener of the sports based youth development sector (SBYD), Laureus USA  launched the Laureus Virtual Training Camp, a series of online trainings and discussions that allows SBYD professionals to connect and invest in themselves, their programs, and their craft. These weekly web-based, topical trainings and conversations were available to all professionals working in Sport for Good across the country and opened with a welcome from a professional athlete.

The first round of trainings ran from April 2nd- May 21st.
