For the fourth year in a row, America SCORES Chicago poet/athletes are Champions! Our very own Giselle & Suzi, Ashley from Eli Whitney and Pilsen's Sole come home Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy Inc. 2015 Champs! Congrats girls!
• The Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy combines a five-night, six-day residential Summer Sports Camp and a Leadership Academy for girls ages 12-18. • The girls train with their respective sports and then we unite for the Leadership component. Half the day training and half the day doing fun, high energy leadership development. • They have World Class role models, Olympic Gold Medalists, World Champions, and all around rockstars on staff every year! • The aim of the JFSLA is to expose students to Julie’s great passion: the concept of not just being a leader on the field but a LEADER IN LIFE.
