East Carolina women’s basketball coach Heather Macy will be a featured speaker at the True North Sports Camp Elevate on the campus of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs next week.

Macy is one of 14 people selected to speak at the three-day event May 29-31, and she will host a 90-minute session on emotional intelligence on Wednesday.

An EQ (emotional intelligence) certified coach, her presentation is called “The Foundation of a Championship Mindset.” Macy will discuss how her knowledge and practice of emotional intelligence has changed her as a coach and deepened her connection with members of her staff and student-athletes, as well as in her personal relationships. She is one of less than 300 coaches in the world with this designation.

Macy also will be speaking at the USA Basketball Coaches Academy at Archbishop Ryan High School in Philadelphia on June 2 and 3, and at Pace Academy in Atlanta on Sept. 15 and 16. Her talk in Philadelphia is titled “Smart Shooting to Impact the Game.”

She is one of only three women coaches – joining Monique Boykins of Lower Merion High School (Pa.) and Robyn Fralick of Bowling Green State University – who have been asked to speak at the Philadelphia academy session.
