All levels of Catholic students, parents, educators and coaches are invited to the Catholic Athletes for Christ “Sports Conference” in northern Virginia, featuring Dr. Bill Thierfelder, president of Belmont Abbey College and a former champion athlete and coach.
The half-day conference on Sept. 21 is located at All Saints Catholic Church in Manassas, Va. It is co-hosted by the athletics department of Seton School, which is recognized by The Cardinal Newman Society’s Catholic High School Honor Roll. The Newman Society is also supporting the event as a co-sponsor.

Dr. Thierfelder will also be available to sign his new book, Less Than a Minute to Go: The Secret to World-Class Performance in Sport, Business and Everyday Life.
