On Wednesday, December 13, 2017, members of the Crusader Athletic Leadership Council met in the Arthur L. Johnson High School IMC. This is the seventh year for the Crusader Athletic Leadership Council, an organization that has been founded to help educate our student athletes on some of the expectations that we have for them as they compete interscholastically in a variety of athletics. We hope that by informing this council of some of our expectations, we will be able to foster an open and healthy relationship amongst our student athletes, the school culture, and the community of Clark.
The C.A.L.C.’s welcomed Keirsten Sires as a guest speaker to discuss leadership and the recruiting process as it pertains to all student athletes. Keirsten played tennis and soccer in college at Skidmore, and started a project in her entrepreneurship class called Locker Room Talk. Locker Room Talk is a platform that aims to keep the college recruiting process honest & easy, while providing high school athletes and their families with invaluable information during the recruiting process. They offer seminars, workshops and consulting to high school student-athletes across the country.
Gus Kalikas, Athletic Director at Arthur L. Johnson High School, had this to say about the event. “The C.A.L.C. was thrilled to have Keirsten Sires come and speak to us on multiple topics relevant to high school athletics today, including recruiting. Keirsten reached all of our students and left them with great strategies that will not only help on the fields, courts, and mats, but also in the game of recruiting. She was a true professional and delivered a wonderful message.”
