The Six

Setting the Table for The Six

Taking an invested interest in other people and helping them become the best version of themselves is at the core of leadership. As your players develop a leadership mindset, thinking of their teammates growth needs to become front and center. The SIX Program is an intentional exercise giving your players the reps to help a specific teammate grow like never before. Through the journey of helping a specific teammate grow, your players will build the confidence and understanding of what it takes to connect with a teammate, serve a teammate, and help build-up a teammate.

"“The SIX program was my favorite part of Lead ‘Em Up and something I looked forward during both my two years on Varsity.”"
