Championship Thinking in Sports – How does the U.S. Olympic Committee Directly Work in Communities?

As you host, I see it, an Olympian isn’t a special kind of person. Rather, every person is a special kind of Olympian. This show gets to the meat of that philosophy with guest Alicia McConnell*. Alicia is U.S. Olympic Committee Director of Athletes Services and Programs. She shares how the U.S. Olympic Committee has developed, designed and implemented sports opportunities for youth based on core aspects of the Olympic model. This has steadily grown to seven communities with more in the offering. Alicia has extensive background as an elite athlete in Squash and Lacrosse, in coaching and program development and management.
