NCAA Academy 2.0

For NCAA Women Coaches Academy graduates only, in 2018, we launched the NCAA Academy 2.0 to help take your coaching game to the next level. Remember that sense of community, passion, and renewed sense of joy for coaching you experienced at the NCAA WCA? We invite you to apply for this master learning opportunity – in a small class setting – which progresses on the skills, strategies, and knowledge gained from your WCA session.

What Coaches Are Saying About Attending the NCAA Academy 2.0

Attending Academy 2.0 was another taste of powerful female leaders. I am so thankful WeCOACH provides a platform for all of us to come together and learn from one another. Yet again, just like the WCA, there were fabulous presenters that were open, knowledgeable and empowering. It was a refreshing and challenging experience. I walked away with new mentors, resources and the motivation to continue to grow.
 – Roz Ellis, Stanford University, Head Field Hockey Coach, Academy 2.0 class #2

Academy 2.0 was an extremely worthwhile experience that has positively impacted my journey as a coach and leader. The staff created an environment that fostered personal and professional growth, while providing valuable ideas for me to improve my program, and to continue to empower the coaching community. In our profession today, we often lose sight of the value of community, and Academy 2.0 emphasized the importance of community as we move forward toward creating sustainability and longevity in coaching.
 – Jen Klein, U of Michigan, Head Women’s Soccer Coach, Academy 2.0 class #1
