Janice Washington, Campbell women’s basketball assistant coach, was one of 40 selected to participate in the WBCA Assistant Coaches Leadership Workshop in Parris Island, S.C.
The workshop was Aug. 26-29 and was designed to teach assistant coaches Marine Corps small unit leadership, including tactics, techniques and procedures.
“I learned that in the Marines, everything is team,” Washington said. “Team is above and beyond everything else. We all need that person that’s there to back us up and say ‘Hey, you’re here for a reason. You can do this.’
“That was one of the biggest things. It’s very heartfelt to know that you’ve got somebody that’s got your back when you’re struggling.”
