You Do not need an advanced degree to help prevent violence
Join us for an evening, where you will be trained on how educate student athletes about healthy relationships and consent. Open to all high school teams in Washington State! We will offer 3 training events in the Seattle area. They are free, and open to any coach, athletic director, team mentor, or advocate in Washington State who wants to get trained.
Who may attend:
These free training events are open to any coach, athletic director, team mentor, or advocate in Washington State who wants to implement Coaching Boys Into Men or Athletes As Leaders with high school-age athletes. All we ask is for a commitment to implementing the program with your team after you participate in the training.
Get ready to team up! Pre-Registration INFO:
1. Registering for the training does not guarantee a spot as we have limited space. We will notify you if you have been accepted a couple weeks prior to the training. In the meantime, please save the date.
2. We encourage coaching teams to apply. Consider who the best facilitator will be for these programs. This person will be an important mentor for the athletes. This could be a head coach, assistant coach, volunteer, or other team mentor. Coaches are encouraged to register and attend together as a team. For Athletes As Leaders, it is recommended to have a female-identified or non-binary mentor for the girls' teams. Please contact us if you have any questions.
3. Priority may be given to schools or sports organizations that send a team of coaches and mentors to the training. We are asking that each school who attends will commit to implementing these programs with at least one boys’ team and one girls’ team (or one co-ed team). Our goal is to engage all genders in violence prevention.
4. Priority may be given to teams that have support from a school or school district administrator (athletic director, principal, assistant principal) or organization director. We have found that buy-in from leadership is key to keeping these programs running and ensuring teams are supported.
Now is the time to start spreading the word, and ask your colleagues, coaching staff, partner teams, and athletic directors if they want to team up!
