About "Learning With Team USA"
Steve Kerr: the Power of Coaching
Great coaches can leave a profound and lasting impact on the athletes they mentor. Through their guidance and encouragement, coaches at all levels can help athletes gain confidence and realize their potential. By demonstrating sportsmanship, determination and hard work, coaches pass on far more than athletic skills: they teach lessons on how to lead a positive, well-rounded life.
In Steve Kerr: The Power of Coaching, the Assistant Coach of the U.S. Men’s National Basketball Team joins Ahmed Fareed of NBC Sports to discuss why great coaching is critical not only to athletic success, but to personal and professional success in any field. Coach Kerr will share his coaching philosophy and influences, how he motivates and uplifts his players, and how great coaching transcends sport.
Race, Sport & Social Change: Learning With Team USA
For decades, athletes have used the power of their platform to point a spotlight on injustices in American society. Specifically, Black Olympic and Paralympic athletes and athletes of color have used their achievements on the field of play to spark conversations about addressing systemic racism and creating a more equitable society for all. Utilizing leadership from Team USA athletes, the newly formed Team USA Council on Racial and Social Justice and the Team USA Mental Health Taskforce, “Race, Sport & Social Change: Learning with Team USA” explores how we can use our personal platforms to inspire social change. The event features Olympic gold medalist Simone Manuel; Dr. Judi Brown Clarke, Olympic silver medalist and vice president of equity & inclusion and chief diversity officer at Stony Brook University; and Certified Mental Performance Consultant Dr. Kensa Gunter.
