Thank you so much to everyone who has attended the Dynamic Leadership Academy in the past and continue to inquire about it moving forward.  We are taking this year off from running the Leadership Academy.  With my move to Maine and the new challenges that come along with this job in the Spring, it has made running a high-quality Leadership Academy in Rhode Island more difficult.  Unfortunately, my responsibilities to our players, staff and program this spring has made it hard to find the time to put the Leadership Academy together, so we will not be holding the event this summer.   

This is definitely not the end of the Leadership Academy.  My goal is to find a better way to format and produce the Academy and bring it back in a better place in 2018.  My sincere thanks for all of your interest in the Dynamic Leadership Academy.  I look forward to putting together an even better event in 2018.

Thank you!

Bob Walsh

Below is information on the Leadership Academies we have held in the past.  We look forward to putting together an even better Academy in 2018.
