2013 OHSAA Foundation Student Leadership Conference

Conference Information

Date and Location
The one day conference will be held at the Ohio Union on the campus of The Ohio State University on Tuesday, October 1, 2013.

Member schools are encouraged to send student athletes that have demonstrated or have potential for leadership roles in your school. Each school group must be accompanied by at least one adult supervisor. The first 900 applicants will be accepted free of charge for this year’s conference. Student-athletes in grades 9 through 12 for the 2013 fall semester are eligible to register.

Conference Activities
The conference will include several national keynote speakers. In addition, five sessions will be provided for student-athletes. Over six different topics will be presented and among these topics are: “The Role of the Student Athlete,” Bullying and Hazing,” Developing Team Captains,” “Healthy Lifestyles” and “Sportsmanship.” All of the speakers are invited to join the after lunch open panel discussion with questions and answers form the participants. Information will be given to all students on the OHSAA project “Community Service and Your School.”

We will be filming an OHSAA video during the sessions of the conference. We encourage participating schools to bring their school colors (banners, jackets, etc.) for the video. This will be a fun way to get the day started and we will post it on the OHSAA Student Leadership Conference web page!

Schools may register an unlimited number of student-athletes. Up to two adult supervisors may accompany the student athletes if four or more students are attending.

We are revising the way schools will register this year. On August 15, 2013, schools will be able to register their student athletes and adults for the conference. A link to the Student Leadership Conference will appear on your school tab on the by August 15, 2013. All participants must register for the conference by Friday September 6, 2013
