Who should enroll in the online Leadership Team Course?

Your Leadership Team should participate in the course and typically includes the following key people:

• Coaches: head and assistant coaches (may also include your strength coach, trainer, support staff)

• Existing Team Leaders: actual/anticipated captains, key team leaders, leadership council members

• Emerging Team Leaders: athletes who show captain potential, leaders of each class/position group
All of these people are important layers of leadership for your program and their leadership influences and impacts your team in many ways - so ideally they all should participate and have a seat at your leadership table. However, if your budget is a concern, you can pare this group down to as low as 1-2 coaches and your actual or anticipated team captains/leaders for the upcoming season.

You and your leaders will virtually attend the classes together online from your respective locations for 35-45 minutes – then you will discuss, customize, and apply the strategies to YOUR TEAM using the practical tools provided – either immediately after the class through your own online Zoom link or during a mutually convenient time later in the week.

By combining your captains and coaches together as one unified Leadership Team for this special course, you will work closely together to successfully establish, endorse, and enforce a Championship Culture in your team.

The 4-Week Online Leadership Team Course teaches you and your leaders how to:

  • develop a strong Leadership Team that works together to effectively co-lead your team
  • pinpoint and appreciate each leader’s strengths and valuable contributions to the program
  • develop and drive winning attitudes and actions that create a Championship Culture
  • build everyone's full buy-in and commitment to your team's standards and goals
  • enhance your team’s chemistry and build an unbreakable bond between teammates and coaches


Join world-renowned Sports Leadership expert and author of The Team Captain's Leadership Manual Jeff Janssen for these live online classes to learn how you can best partner with your team leaders to create and sustain a Championship Culture in your program.

What Coaches Say about the Value/Impact of the Course:

Everything is relevant and hands on. The anecdotal stories from Jeff's experience with so many high level coaches helps drive home the points. It's been great... thank you!

Within the first 30 minutes I already had great ideas!

Jeff is doing an amazing job and keeping a good pace. I also like that Jeff has studied Championship programs and brought to us "this is what they do". This is what championship programs with strong cultures, values, and standards do. Love it.

The real-life stories drive all the key points home for me, without a doubt.

The clear, concise ways to evaluate our own culture and then talk about it with the same language.
Jeff does a great job laying things out and giving us things to take directly back to our programs.
I have been so inspired that I have two of my high school ADs and seven of our coaches all on this course. Some of us will discuss after each class. My vision has always been to hire credible transformational coaches who create student leaders through sport! This class is a step by step process to accomplish this.
I really like how it is broken down into learnable segments without taking a huge amount of time.
The course is great!
