The CLA conducts research, professional development trainings, and academic programs for leaders within athletic departments and sport organizations. We do things a little differently here: hands-on, thought-provoking, and skill-based training with an education and leadership foundation. 

How can we help you, or your staff, to be better?

  • Are you a current athletic administrator looking to propel your career with a Master's degree?  


  • Are you with a team or sport organization that needs training for your coaches? 
    • We offer an array of different opportunities to fit your training needs and are ready to meet coaches wherever they may be on their coaching journey, or contact us for a free consultation to discuss your needs and how we can help. 


  • Interested in having a CLA staff member present at a professional conference or event?
