The Champions Network™ features remote training and live sessions which aim to develop awareness around youth mental health, equip more professionals with the tools to support youth through sport-based initiatives, and reimagine mental health through the lens of sport.

"Our sincere thanks to the training you conducted for our young coaches and athletes. We at Far East Basketball Association [F.E.B.A] are very much grateful and full of happiness since the training was very informative to the participants. To many [of our coaches], it was an eye-opener towards mental health approach."

What We Offer:

Our Training:

Who can participate in training?

Our training related to trauma-informed sport and Doc Wayne's innovative curriculum, Creating Champions™, are available for individuals and organizations.

 

Why sport-based therapy?

Sport-based therapy is a viable option for youth who may not progress in traditional talk therapy and has shown to be as effective as traditional outpatient therapy.

 

What is the purpose of the training? 

Our goal is to make dramatic changes in how youth is served, where everyone has a standardized understanding of mental health issues, where cultural disparities are addressed, and open conversations can occur freely. 

-Trauma-Informed Care
-Breaking the Silence
-Creating Champions Level 1 (Coach & Clinician Track)
-Coaching & Consultation
-Specialized Training for Organizations

Every child globally has mental health symptoms.

We want to equip partner organizations to be part of a system that is a network of youth providers that provide youth services in the sports context.

Together, we break the stigma of mental health in sports.
