CIAC 2018 Sportsmanship Conference
The 12th annual CIAC Sportsmanship Conference will be held on Thursday, November 15 at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville CT. Our Keynote Speaker is Keven Laue with his "OVERCOMING ADVERSITY AND ACHIEVING SUCCESS THROUGH DETERMINATION" engaging presentation. Nearly seven-feet-tall with flaming red hair, Kevin Laue commands attention simply by walking on stage. His story, however, never fails to hold that attention for audiences of all ages. The first player missing a limb to play NCAA Division 1 basketball, he overcame the early death of his father, a challenging home environment and a legion of critics to become one of the top high school basketball players in his home state of California while earning a scholarship to join the Manhattan College Jaspers. Employing a mixture of humor, audience participation, and a uniquely strong delivery, he tells the story of a life so extraordinary, it was chronicled in the 2013 Oscar-qualifying documentary Long Shot. The Kevin Laue Story. Our afternoon speaker is Scott Driscoll, Law Enforcement Officer, Educator and Parent with his presentation on Internet Safety that offers real life internet scenarios that demonstrate the repercussions of not being technologically aware and educated. Students will participate in interactive workshop activities, consider and address real world challenges and network with athletic leaders from across the state. We will revisit “Class Act Schools” with updates, highlights and lessons learned in the first year of the program. Schools should bring the student leaders who will carry the learning forward both on the field and in the building. Athletic Directors, and School Administrators are urged to attend. CAS-CIAC is asking as many schools as possible to attend and will not limit the number of participants for the day. To that end, we ask that leadership teams consist of groups of 5, 10, 15 20, etc. so as to facilitate group work at the Aqua Turf. Register early so our team can plan meal and space requirements for this important day!
