on Extraordinary Coaching
at Vail Mountain
The focus of this year’s Summit will be on “Adaptation and Leadership in Coaching.” It is my belief that given the nature of the landscape today, with changing NCAA rules and changing conference alignments, the ability to adapt will be the crucial factor in whether or not a coaching staff can sustain excellence over a long period of time. Some of the presenters include:
* Christy Johnson, Head Women’s Volleyball Coach at Iowa State University who engineered one of the greatest turnarounds in NCAA history when she took over a program thathad not had a winning season in over a decade and turned it into a National Power.
* Tim Miles, Head Men’s Basketball Coach at Nebraska who developed programs at NAIA schools, Division II schools, and Colorado State, and has now taken on perhaps his biggest challenge by taking the reigns of a Big Ten program that has never won an NCAA tournament game.
* John Frothingham, COO of the United States Anti Doping Agency, who has had to adapt to stay ahead of Balco, Lance Armstrong, and the latest advancements in athletes who are using performance enhancing drugs.
* Mike Kloser, four time world champion in Adventure Racing, World Champion Mountain Biker, World Champion Long Distance Orienteering, and National Champion in Winter Triatholon will present on competing in the most extreme conditions when adaptation is not only necessary for success but sometimes survival.
* Terry Pettit, three time national coach of the year and former director of Leadership Academies at Creighton, Denver and Colorado State Universities.
* National Championship coaches from both Men’s and Women’s Volleyball plus business leaders from major corporations.
I believe that the best and most experienced coaches benefit from interacting with top achievers from other fields. That is why I invite successful volleyball coaches to Vail to interact with extraordinary leaders from other disciplines. I hope that you can join us in Vail Village in early June for what I believe will be the best Summit ever. Should you decide you would like to attend, please email me as soon as you know so that I can reserve lodging at the Vail Marriott. <email@example.com>
