On September 12th-14th, John Underwood, founder of the American Athletic Institute, will be in Eau Claire County.

- increases community, school, and team pride
Over 40 school and community coaches, athletic directors, and administrators from across Eau Claire County attended a Life of an Athlete presentation this past spring, and felt that Life of an Athlete is a program that will give us the information and tools needed to raise the level of performance among student athletes.
