Athletics Leadership Program for Student Athletes

Norwich Free Academy’s Athletics Leadership Program hosted a workshop, Thursday, May 31, 2018, for students from a number of different sports. The student athletes were selected by their coaches as potential leaders for their respective teams. The workshop was led by NFA coaches Jason Bakoulis, Anthony Turgeon, Luke Gabordi, and Jeff Brown. Topics included leadership qualities, team positions, and their role in creating a positive image for themselves as well as for the Academy and their teammates. Coaches and students involved in the workshop conducted a community service project to reinforce the positive impact they have on their community by spreading wood chips and mulch along some of the trails in Mohegan Park in Norwich.
