Our Captains' Counsel Explores Confidence

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Feb 12, 2020 9:36:00 PM

This week our Captains' Council group convened once again for our fourth meeting of 2020. This group is comprised of student-athletes who have been identified as leaders by their coaches on their respective Senior Varsity teams. This programme, which began five years ago, provides these students an opportunity to explore different aspects of leadership while also discussing the challenges and rewards of being a leader in our School context.

The goal is to support each student-athlete so they are better equipped to support their teammates in their respective athletic arenas. Each meeting, a small group will present on a topic and lead a discussion with the larger group of their peers. So far, they have covered Exploring Leadership, Commitment, and Composure. Our most recent meeting was facilitated by our Senior Girls’ Soccer captains Allie Martin and Mya Snarr who helped the group think more deeply about Confidence. In addition to taking part in this group, each of our captains earn one of our KES Captain’s Pins which are presented at our full School assemblies at the beginning of their respective sport terms.
