2016 Junior Coach Leadership Conference

  1. Updates

Playworks Michigan held our 2016 Junior Coach Leadership Conference on Saturday, March 19 at Roosevelt Primary School in Ferndale. Junior Coaches from our partner schools all over Metro Detroit came together to celebrate being Junior Coaches in this culminating event.

Our Coaches ran stations that each of our Junior Coaches rotated through. Some stations included how to set smart goals, financial literacy, bike maintenance, and the importance of expressing gratitude to those who support you.

Playworks was excited to have UnitedHealthcare participate in the Junior Coach Leadership Conference. United Healthcare provided a swag station and a seminar for parents. UHC addressed parents and guardians of the 68 Junior Coaches in attendance about how UHC can help find a provider and better understand coverage and benefits.

Partnership with UnitedHealthcare has allowed Playworks Michigan to continue to provide our high quality programming to students in Metro Detroit and we look forward to continued collaboration in future events.
