We are currently taking interest from industry professionals who would like to serve as a mentor for the 2019 Game Changing Retreat.

Retreat Objectives

  • Increase the understanding and application of skills necessary to secure positions in sports business

  • Increase the understanding and awareness of competencies necessary for success in sports business

  • Introduce student-athletes to industry professionals creating positive relationships

  • Raise awareness of the existing talent pool of current and former student-athletes who have a passion and interest to work in sports business.

The Winning Edge Game Changing Retreat is designed to exceed the expectations of a traditional retreat.

Knowing the powerful impact of mentorship and an effective network, The Winning Edge Leadership Academy is hosting the first Game Changing Retreat to influence and prepare student-athletes for a career in sports business.  The focus of this intense, multi-day experience will be on networking, industry discussions, cultivating leadership, and creating career objectives.

Cohort members are a diverse collective of current and former student-athletes with a history of success on and off the field. Mentors are industry professionals who will share insight and provide guidance to the next generation of leaders in sports business.
