The BSA kicked off its first Education Session for the year with Jake Briggs from Leading Teams.

The session was held at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club and had 70 athletes in attendance.

The BSA trademark behaviours have been developed by the athletes for the athletes. It is expected that all athletes and staff use them as expected behaviours.

To ensure we live our trademarks & show leadership, we must;
1. Model the right behaviours
2. Challenge counterproductive behaviours (remind each other of behaviours we do not tolerate
3. Reward the positive behaviours. (Say thanks and well done when you see expected behaviours)

The BSA trademark can be found here.
