Assistant Track Coach Attends NCAA Emerging Leaders Seminar

Assistant coach Austin Warner attends national conference for emerging leaders

Nova Southeastern University assistant coach Austin Warner recently attended the NCAA’s Emerging Leaders Seminar at the NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis.

The Emerging Leaders Seminar (ELS) is an annual professional development event providing effective leadership, educational and transitional programming for more than 200 current graduate assistants and interns from NCAA membership institutions, conference offices and affiliate organizations. The three-day program educates, develops and connects selected participants, and has proved to increase the likelihood for career progression within intercollegiate athletics.

“I was honored to be surrounded by so many bright and charismatic individuals who are truly passionate about intercollegiate athletics and where it is headed in the future,” said Warner. “I was able to learn more about myself as a leader and how to communicate and work effectively with others who may have different leadership styles than myself.”

Warner was invited to the event just before being promoted to full time assistant coach for NSU cross country and track and field. Warner has worked with both programs since arriving in the fall of 2013, leading several student-athletes to the national stage. Originally from Dyer, Ind., Warner earned his Bachelor’s degree from Trinity Christian College. Warner is a three-time NAIA national qualifier in cross country and a four-time national qualifier on the track.

“The keynote speakers were outstanding, as they all were successful leaders in their respected fields of collegiate athletics,” said Warner. “We also had dynamic breakout sessions in which we were able to learn more about the different areas that make up a collegiate athletic department. The NCAA ELS was a terrific networking event as I was able to establish relationships with the other 199 individuals who were selected. I would highly recommend it to any intern or graduate assistant who strives to pursue a career in the field of intercollegiate athletics.”
