Mission Statement:
The Blue Hen Leadership Program is open to all student athletes, both at the varsity and club sports level. Our mission is to guide each team in the development of a championship culture of leadership based on shared values, standards and a positive team brand. Through participation in BHLP workshops, guest speaker events and experiential activities, student athletes will begin to understand and demonstrate the roles of leaders and followers on an athletic team and will be able to articulate the transferability of gained skills to the classroom and the world of work.

In addition, customized workshops can be presented to individual teams, based on pre-determined needs and schedules. These team-based workshops will also count towards BHLP leadership certification.  Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

UD Men's Lacrosse Sophomores: Selling the Team Brand
UD Men's Lacrosse Juniors: Selling the Team Brand

From our coaches...
"We have received a lot of great feedback about your team building sessions. I think the true colors have helped us the most as a group – it has provided us with a framework for better understanding each other. I also think that the values exercise has helped the team and staff to have some dialogue about our strengths and weaknesses."
-Kateri Linville, Head Women's Lacrosse Coach
