Released by the USMC Sports Leadership Academy.

United States Marine Corps Sports Leadership Academy will train hundreds of high school athletes at its Built to Lead Volleyball event Saturday, November 23, 2019 (9768 Warren H Abernathy Highway, Spartanburg, SC 29301).
USMC’s Built to Lead Volleyball provides participants with first-class instruction from elite local coaches. It also instills participants with intangible leadership qualities that will make them Built to Lead in every aspect of life.
At the event, participants will take part in sessions focusing on vital volleyball skills. Various challenges will push them to their physical limits, building character and encouraging teamwork. The Marines will also give each participant a physical evaluation of various athletic abilities. Participants will be motivated through personal interaction with U.S. Marines, some of America’s toughest and fittest citizens. All participants will receive positive role models in these men and women who powerfully exemplify what it means to lead with strength and confidence.
The free event begins at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 3:30 p.m., following an awards presentations and closing ceremony. The seven top performers will receive All-Academy medals. All participants receive a USMC Sports Leadership Academy t-shirt and free lunch, as well as a camp swag bag. The event is open to anyone 15 to 19 years of age. Registration is available at www.usmcsports.com.
Every player needs these skills. Every coach wants these players. Every community needs tough, strong citizens. Through this one-of-a-kind event, local youths will become Built to Lead—both on and off the field.
