OUR CURRICULUM

Our sport-based curriculum is designed with evidence-based frameworks for children and youth, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC). Created by our team of licensed clinicians, we utilize four fundamental constructs to promote the well-being of youth.

TEAMWORK
Equally as important as a person’s individual development is their ability to create and maintain healthy relationships with peers and coaches. Based on the Personal and Social Responsibility Model (PSR), the Teamwork construct focuses on commitmentselflessness, and awareness of others. While taught in a sports context, these social skills are invaluable for everyday life.
COMMUNICATION
RESILIENCE
CONFIDENCE

CREATING CHAMPIONS™

DESIGNED FOR AGES 8+

Doc Wayne’s Creating Champions™ curriculum layers clinical and social-emotional learning goals onto an easy-to-grasp sports framework. Four fundamental constructs – Teamwork, Communication, Resilience, & Confidence – are broken down into 30 teachable skills, which all ladder up to Connectedness.
Creating Champions™ is designed to look like a tournament-style sports bracket and uses youth-friendly, sport-based language to ensure youth and families can connect to the material. To meet the unique needs of our younger constituents, ages 5-8, Doc Wayne also designed and launched a junior curriculum, Rookie Pride.

ROOKIE PRIDE™

DESIGNED FOR AGES 5-8

Doc_Wayne_Ne Group
Rookie Pride™ is Doc Wayne’s proprietary junior curriculum designed specially for youth 5-8 years old. Rookie Pride™ reflects the skills presented in our original curriculum, Creating Champions™, while incorporating language, themes, and characters which are more age-appropriate for this age range.
The curriculum was intentionally created to attract and excite younger participants. The curriculum incorporates cartoon-like characters (a pride of lions), coloring sections, and stickers. Each facet is intended to make a young child’s time with Doc Wayne more engaging and fun.
Rookie Pride™ was developed using feedback from our younger participants, their families, our coaches, and other experts in the youth development field. Each skill, statement, and session were created to reflect evidence and trauma-informed best practices. Social emotional learning skills, which are inherent to positive youth development, guide the language and order of each skill.
