On Wednesday, April 29, 270 Playworks Junior Coaches attended an all-day leadership conference at Grand Canyon University. Students got to meet fellow Junior Coaches from around the valley and were treated to a campus tour by Grand Canyon University student athletes. Junior Coaches participated in numerous challenges that included a newspaper tower building competition. In addition, each school invented a game to play with their fellow Junior Coaches. The day concluded with the graduation ceremony; each student received a Junior Coach graduation certificate welcoming them into the Playworks Junior Coach Alumni association.

Many thanks to DPR Construction who sponsored and volunteered at the event and United Healthcare for their support our future leaders.
