The DIII Coaches’ Summit is different than any workshop or clinic I have ever attended. Instead of focusing on technical aspects of the game, the Summit focuses more on conscious culture creation, and other mental aspects of competition. It was an extraordinary experience. The Summit helped reshape my thinking and provided me with concrete concepts to take my program to the next level.”

Coaches’ Institutes

College • 3 days

This conference-style program is an immersive, campus-based experience. You customize your daily coursework with a mix of seminars and session electives. In the evening, forums offer insight and inspiration for your work with college athletes.

On the last afternoon of the Institute, you recap your takeaways from the coursework and develop action plans. Plans are as diverse as our participants. Some plans address mission and values creation for schools and teams. Others map out an approach for handbooks and expectations. And other plans are a springboard to developing rituals and traditions for a team.

Strive is committed to every coach. That means you take back to your program insights of real, actionable value. You leave an Institute not only with hours of theoretical learning but also with clear plans for integrating this knowledge into the work with your community.
