The SCORE International Leadership Forum will be on Saturday, from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., at Calvary Bible Chapel, 3415 South Broad Street.

Keith Madison, the former head baseball coach at the University of Kentucky will also be sharing his thoughts on "Growing Leaders".

SCORE is providing this clinic at no cost as a way of encouraging people to use the platform they have to coach more than just a game. Light breakfast will be provided.
