Leadership training offered by Pinnacle

These last couple of weeks I've been looking around on the internet trying to find a worthy article about Todd to post and I finally found one! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! :)

Pinnacle Sports and Coaching4Life are teaming up to host the Captains Leadership Training event 6-9 p.m. on July 29 at the Pinnacle Sports facility in Medina

The free motivational and educational program is designed to empower local high school sports captains, coaches of all levels (youth through college) and parents to better lead their teams, student bodies and communities.

The mission of Pinnacle Sports and Coaching4Life is to develop better human beings through athletics. Leadership training for players, coaches and parents is a vital component in youth athletics.

This program is designed to fill the bag of tools for those with influence from those who have experience and success as captains, coaches and parents.

Open to captains of all high school varsity boys and girls sports, the program features leadership messages from high-profile sports figures and breakout sessions for captains, coaches and parents.

The event will showcase the Coaching4Life philosophy of building character in athletes and Pinnacle Sports' mission of intentionally integrating that character into sports and life.

Presenters for the three-hour program include former Cleveland Browns head coach Sam Rutigliano, former Ohio State University captains and NFL players Tom Cousineau and Mike Tomczak and Coaching4Life trainer John Callahan

The program also will include video presentations from Ohio State University football head coach Jim Tressel and former Buckeye standouts Troy Smith, Todd Boeckman, Chris Spielman and Archie Griffin.

"We are excited to host this unique event that will help high school varsity captains better understand the privilege they have in their role as captains and leaders," said Mike Orazen, Coaching4Life president. "Coaches and parents will also benefit by learning how to integrate character into their coaching and parenting. Our approach to training goes far beyond the playing field. We strive to make good character the foundation of our athletes' lives.

"Pinnacle Sports is honored to partner with Coaching4Life in hosting the Captains Leadership Training," said Rich Garbinsky, Pinnacle Sports general manager. "All of our coaches and trainers are trained through the character-building Coaching4Life process, and we have really seen the difference it makes in the lives of young athletes. Character building is the basis for all of our programs."
