The Maroon and White Board will sponsor its first Peak Performance Speaker Series Thursday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. This month’s topic is “Parenting Your Student Athlete Through the Pandemic: Actions you can take to help them thrive emotionally.”

Presented by Dr. Megan Cannon, a frequent contributor on ESPN’s SportsCenter, she is an internationally recognized expert in sport and performance psychology. Her client list includes elite athletes as well as Division I and high school student athletes. Megan will discuss the impact of the pandemic on student athletes, communication traps parents can avoid, what behaviors parents can model at home to help student athletes cope and specific actions parents can immediately put into play to help student athletes thrive emotionally.

Following the presentation there will be a 20-minute open Q&A session. 

Attendance for this first webinar is free to attend; however, Maroon and White reserves the right to restrict access to future sponsored Peak Performance Speaker Series events to Maroon and White members only, or to charge a fee to non-Maroon and White members.
