About the Event
About our GUEST SPEAKER COACH ANDREA HUDY:
Andrea Hudy enters her second season as Head Coach, Basketball Strength and Conditioning at the University of Texas. Before coming to Texas, Hudy served as the Assistant Athletics Director for Sports Performance at The University of Kansas and handled the strength and conditioning responsibilities for the Kansas men's basketball team for 15 years. In 2017, the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) honored Hudy with the Impact Award, given to an individual whose career has greatly contributed to the advancement of the national or international strength and conditioning and fitness industries. In the summer of 2014, her book, Power Positions, was published. In January 2013, she was named the NSCA Coach Of the Year for her dedication to improving athletic performance with safe and effective science-based programs. Prior to her time at Kansas, Husy spent nine-plus years at the University of Connecticut, where she was a part of eight national championship teams, including two men's basketball, five women's basketball and one men's soccer. In her 26 seasons of collegiate strength and conditioning coaching, Hudy has worked with 48 former student-athletes who have gone on to play in the NBA
After talking to many female coaches around the world about their experiences in the sports industry, I realized how much I resonated with all of them from all my experiences since I started my coaching career. I decided to create a discussion group where we will meet once a month through Zoom to support and engage each other in those conversations. This is not only open to female coaches, we want male coaches to also join the conversation as this is the only way we can grow and empower each other in the sports industry. This is open for everybody who works with sports in one way or another. We will have women working in the world of sports presenting some of their own challenges and growth experiences, discuss a variety of different topics and make this as engaging as possible. It will also be a great way to network and meet other coaches who might share the same ideas (or not) in our industry. Communication, understanding, exchanging ideas and experiences are one of the most powerful ways to grow. This is a free service, all you need is to click on the link to register!
