Please join us as we prepare for the 2017 season! Come network with your peers on the Sound and gain insight into new strategies for making this summer the most successful yet!

Topics will include the following:
- What are the top 10 additional things required to run a successful program?

- Corinthian sporting spirit
- Pooling resources: What we can do for one another this summer? Common goals.
