This is not about sports. The mission of CSLi leadership is to change the conversation around what it means to be a leader on a sports team and in life. CSLi intends to impact as many athletes as possible with the message that true leadership is found through mindfulness, social-emotional development, and building connection though empathy and mutual vulnerability.
LEADERSHIP TRAINING AT UT-AUSTIN
To expand our reach and fulfill our mission beyond campus, we created the Captains Academy, originally a joint effort with the Austin Independent School District (AISD). Captains Academy is a leadership training program designed to equip the captains of boys and girls teams with unique leadership training in connection, goal-setting, mindset, and personal brand building. Captains Academy is available to any high-school student athlete leader in Texas.
LEADERSHIP EXPLORATION & DEVELOPMENT
CSLi Athlete Leadership Workshops deploy advanced leadership trainings to student-athletes across Central Texas. The CSLi team comes to your school and works directly with your athletes and coaches.
A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE KEVIN DURANT FOUNDATION
The Center for Sports Leadership & Innovation, The Kevin Durant Foundation, Thirty-Five Ventures and The Durant Center at College Track have partnered to create the Entrepreneurial Leadership Experience. This two-day intensive training in leadership and entrepreneurship training takes place in Kevin’s hometown of Suitland, Maryland.
A NEW TWIST ON THE COLLEGE VISIT
Get more out of your students’ college visits to The University of Texas. The UT Leadership Experience is a customized leadership training and college visit all rolled into one. Bring your group of high school juniors or seniors to campus and let the CSLi team introduce them to concepts that will help them succeed as they take their next steps in life.
DEVELOPMENT CUSTOMIZED LEADERSHIP CONSULTING
Every seasoned coach has a leadership and character development philosophy for their athletes. Not every coach has the time to create a personalized off-season plan for their teams. Let the experts as CSLi put your personal leadership philosophy into a curriculum for your team.
