Athlete Leadership Program 2019

This article was written by Justin Hill, SOSUNS athlete

The Athlete Leadership Program give Athletes the chance to have their voices heard by sitting on their region’s committee and discussing what the athlete have to say. The program give them an opportunity to speak at function to promote their region and to meet and greet guests at event. This is a real confidence boost for the athlete as they can speak on their committee and meet and greet guest. In the Athlete Leadership Program for our Region we have Jonathan Reiss, Stephanie Walker and myself Justin Hill.
