NHS Athletics: Rockets Review


On Wednesday the Athletic Department held multiple workshops for student-athletes and coaches.  In the afternoon over 90 Athletic Team Captains from All Seasons took part in workshop on how to be a "Triple Impact Competitor". The program was facilitated by Amy Manson from the Positive Coaching Alliance.  Amy, a former NCAA All-American & Professional Runner stayed Wednesday night and did "Double Goal Coach" workshop with 85 members of our coaching staff.  This year, the workshops took place at the new Trip Advisor Headquarters in Needham!
