FYI Friday: Jesse Porter, Head Coach (Lacrosse) @ U of T is joining us for Workshop Wednesday!

Updated: Jun 29, 2021

We are SO EXCITED to have Jesse Porter, Coach and Program Facilitator, visit us (virtually) and take us through a motivating and inspiring activity for Workshop Wednesday June 30th 7-8pm EST.

Jesse is passionate about being active for life and working with athletes as people first. She is the Head Coach of the Women’s Lacrosse Program at the University of Toronto. She grew up playing every sport from lacrosse to rugby and spent four years living in China and New Zealand while travelling all over Europe, Asia and South America in between! She used her international sport leadership experience to stay resilient and embrace struggles while she travelled. She now uses her travel experiences to coach from a more holistic people-centered lens.

She is currently leading a community of practice for female coaches and is currently working with 40 incredible coaches from across Canada. Jesse is leading them through topics such as: team cohesion, mental wellness, conflict resolution, leadership skills, equity, diversity and inclusion and many more!

...and she is going to use her sports training and expertise to lead us through a life changing activity!
