Sport Leadership Development Training

Your Captains CAN Become Great Leaders


Many coaches will tell you that the difference between a good team and a great team, is the leadership of their captains. The simple fact is that: “Great leaders are not born, they are made” (Vince Lombardi). However, many coaches have time constraints that hinder their ability to develop their captains into great leaders. Some coaches are unsure of how to provide systematic leadership development to unique personalities. Lastly, there is a tremendous amount of information out there on leadership development that deciphering which is quality and which is unnecessary for our team can be extremely difficult, and, frankly, too time consuming.

My process for captain leadership development begins by working with the coaches to determine the specific leadership needs for their team. Then, it’s important to develop a formal leadership training program that is flexible but consistent and sustainable. The leadership training program involves systematically identifying potential leaders, identifying qualities of effective leadership, incorporating 360-degree evaluations, and specific strategies for practices and games to increase the impact of your leaders.

I would love to help you develop your captains into great leaders. If you have any questions about leadership in general or would like more information on my leadership development program, feel free to email me at
