FINIS, Inc., a worldwide leader in technical swimming innovation, is proud to partner with The LEAD Sports Summit, the first ever leadership and empowerment summit for teenage girl swimmers. LEAD, which stands for Leadership, Empowerment, and Athletic Development, gives attendees the opportunity to learn leadership and communication skills from one of the most accomplished groups of female mentors ever assembled: Olympians Kara Lynn Joyce, Elizabeth Beisel, and Missy Franklin, confidence coach Christen Shefchunas, and nutritionist Jennifer Brunelli.
“FINIS is thrilled to be involved with the first ever LEAD Sports Summit. While its wonderful to be a great swimmer, being a great person and leader are truly some of the most important attributes a person can attain,” said CJ Fiala, FINIS Sports Marketing Lead. “With Kara leading the charge, along with her other inspiring panelists, we have no doubt that this summit will make a profound impact on our future female leaders in swimming and beyond. LEAD’s mission clearly aligns with what we are hoping to achieve, and we could not be more proud to be partners with them.”
The LEAD Sports Summit was founded in 2017 by 3-time Olympian Kara Lynn Joyce. Since retiring from competitive swimming in 2012, Kara has pursued a career in coaching, speaking, and mentorship. A common theme and passion through Kara’s athletic career and professional journey has been the mentorship and empowerment of young women. The mission of LEAD is to change the lives of young female athletes by teaching, empowering, and cultivating an environment for leadership.
“I’m excited to have FINIS on board with LEAD,” said Kara. “They are an innovative company with a passion for developing lifelong skills and techniques in the pool, and they share our vision of empowering girls with leadership and communication skills that can last a lifetime.”
The LEAD Sports Summit will take place in Austin, Texas from September 2-4, 2017. Registration for LEAD is open to all female swimmers, ages 13-18. Athletes can register for the event and sign up for the LEAD newsletter through the website: https://leadsportssummit.com/.
