Taking place in the one and only Muhammad Ali Center, during these seminars, athletes will be encouraged to reflect upon their individual and team values, explore their inner strength, and discover their greatness through service to others.
Professional educators from the Muhammad Ali Center and guest speakers will engage attendees in interactive sessions to discover Muhammad Ali’s Six Core Principles (Confidence, Conviction, Dedication, Giving, Respect, and Spirituality). Participants will learn how these principles gave Muhammad the wherewithal to be the best athlete he could be, the strength and courage to stand up for what he believed, the inspiration to reach people around the world, and the perseverance to help others. Seminars are open to the public, but programming will be geared toward females athletes between the ages of 11 and 18.
