"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."

"Thank you for creating this space for us to connect and learn together! I loved the shout-outs and separation of youth [and] adults for the application of each TIC [Trauma-Informed Care] principle."

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.

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.
