Our 2020 WRCRA Conference attendees had the distinct honor to listen to Shannon Miller's story and spend time getting to know her throughout the weekend. In case you missed it, here's more about Shannon and how she embodies our theme, Winning Without Apology.
Shannon's keynote kicked off the conference with a huge dose of inspiration, and reality about the landscape for women coaches across all sports. Here's what a few of our attendees had to say about her sessions:
"Shannon's story was infuriating and inspiring."
"Shannon Miller was outstanding and resonating."
"Shannon was the can't miss draw."
We made an impression on her too as she said, "rugby players have to be the coolest people on the planet!" We have it on video, Shannon - you can't take it back!
In the next few weeks we’ll be posting clips from Shannon's keynote speech.These clips offer insight into what every coach wants to know - what the ingredients are for sustained excellence and happy players - from a coach who has proven again and again that she knows how to win. The first installment, which offers Shannon's insight on how both coaches and players show up to the team, poses the question, "are you a lion or a mouse?" Think about it as you watch and comment below with your thoughts.
