Sports Leadership Opportunities

In addition to participation on our sports teams, we provide opportunities for leadership and skills development through two student leadership organizations: Student Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) and the Sports Management and Media Team.

Student Athlete Leadership Team (SALT)

SALT members help the Athletic Department by consulting on decisions, showing initiative by proposing and implementing projects to enhance the sports experience for the SJND community, and showing leadership through recruitment and support of SJND athletes. SALT is comprised of elected committee members who have participated in an interview, completed a short essay about leadership, and submitted two recommendations (one from a student and one from a teacher). SALT members meet once a month in person.

Sports Management and Media Team

The Sports Management and Media team is a group of students in varying roles, producing media to enhance the sports experience for the SJND community. This includes developing game/meet reports, promoting upcoming events, and broadcasting events through live-streaming platforms. The Sports Management and Media team will meet weekly in person.

These two groups will fuel the next stage on our journey of SJND athletics success and personal development of our students and student-athletes. Students participating will help us bring enthusiasm to the community for our sports program and present great learning experiences.

For information on joining either of these groups, please contact Athletic Director John Bertken, jbertken@sjnd.org.
