Lakota West’s Student Athlete Advisory Board: More than Meets the Eye


Every other Sunday, August through May, nearly 60 of Lakota West’s finest student-athletes gather for two to three hours to practice a skill shared across all their sports: leadership. Senior members, or “veteran leaders,” organize and lead each meeting for their junior member counterparts, or “emerging leaders.” 

Following Jeff Janssen’s “The Team Captain’s Leadership Manual,” every meeting zooms in on a new chapter and theme, combining small group discussion with a former Lakota athlete as their guest speaker.
