On April 21, 2015, the first cohort was inducted into Longwood’s Chi Sigma Iota honor society. CSI is an international honors society that values academic and professional excellence in counseling. Since its founding in 1985, Chi Sigma Iota has over 96,000 members and is equally balanced between professional and student members. Dr. Phyllis Jones, Assistant Professor of Counselor Education, is the faculty advisor.
Offered through Longwood University in Farmville, Va., the Secrets of ChampionsTM Institute will be held July 12-17, with a three-week online post-residency component. The Institute offers a comprehensive, professional development, action-packed immersion program carrying knowledge and skills enhancement, along with a national coaching certification for in-service/pre-service coaches and coach administrators at all levels.
This is the first time the science-based sustained excellence training used by top-level professional and amateur athletes, elite military units and championship organizations is available to coaches without a private consultation contract.
The curriculum will include:
- Science of Sustained Excellence
- Skills Coaching Theory and Practice
- Use of unique performance tools
- Competitive Strategies and Tactics
- Group Performance and Leadership
Participants will learn from and interact with leaders in the sports performance industry.
