76ers to Sign Kevin Grow

The 76ers will sign athlete Kevin Grow to a 2-day contract that features some great incentives.  “Grow will eat dinner in the players lounge, tour the practice facility and receive Sixers gear. He will also join the team on the floor toward the end of practice, meet and shoot around with his new teammates, and be greeted by his coaches.”

Check out the video of Kevin scoring below and read the article here.

Leadership Highlights

As we talked about last week, SOLA hosted a leadership conference in Lake Charles, LA this past weekend. Athletes, partners, coaches, and family members participated in this two day conference which featured fun, interactive games and some vital lessons on social media and the formula for good leadership: Participation + Responsibility + Strategy = LEADERSHIP!

We found many good leaders that will take our organization to the next level!
