CCIW gathers student-athletes at workshop
The College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin is hosting its first student-athlete workshop Friday and Saturday.
The event in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, will involve up to four student-athletes and an advisor from each of the CCIW's eight member schools. Participants will hear guest speakers and engage in team-building exercises and group activities that are designed to aid the student-athletes in becoming better leaders on their campuses and making more of their experiences as a collegiate athlete.
The workshop, funded through the Division III Strategic Initiatives Grant Program, also will focus on ideas for enhancing the schools' student-athlete advisory councils.
"The workshop is a chance for student-athletes and athletics administrators to take a break away from their busy schedule, come to Lake Geneva, and learn about ways to enhance their experiences on their respective campuses," said CCIW Commissioner Chris Martin.
