Cedar Crest Welcomes Coaches From Throughout the Region During NCAA Women Coaches Academy

For the first time ever, Cedar Crest College welcomed 70 women coaches from colleges and universities from up and down the East Coast for a one-day NCAA Women Coaches Academy on Tuesday, January 12. The NCAA Women Coaches Academy provides skills training for coaches at all levels to assist them in being more efficient, productive, resourceful and successful.

The participants learned skills that are not sport specific, yet ones that are relevant and necessary for coaching responsibilities, from such names as Celia Slater, Bo Hanson and Ann Salerno. Slater, a former NCAA basketball coach, is the founder of the Women Coaches Academy and also runs various programming through the NCAA. Hanson is a four-time rowing Olympian from Australia that specializes in athlete assessments. Salerno is a Women Coaches Academy instructor
