Women's Basketball assistant coach Miriam Justinger was selected to participate in a Marine Corps Leadership workshop May 15-18.
The WBCA and the United States Marine Corps partner annually for the Coaches Leadership Workshop, which is conducted for all coaches of women's basketball.
The program is designed to teach assistant coaches from across the nation Marine Corps small unit leadership (tactics, techniques and procedures). The workshop provides for unity of command and effort throghout the event. The coaches, in turn, determine how they can take what they learn and apply it to their respective programs.
The three-day workshop was held at the Marine Corps Officer Candidates School in Quantico, Virginia. The purpose of the workshop is to provide selected coaches an opportunity to learn how Marine Officers are recruited, screened and developed into leaders. The workshop also assists coaches in gaining an understanding of Marine Corps' leadership traits, principles and small unit leadership - something they can take back with them in order to foster a culture of leadership among their student-athletes.
