Program Objectives & Outline

This powerful program offers Leagues and Teams practical and evidence-based strategies for promoting positive youth behavior. In this program coaches will learn and implement;

  • Mindful Leadership: The program will teach coaches how to lead mindfully by incorporating mindfulness practices into their coaching approach. This includes mindfulness meditations, breathing exercises, and body scans to help coaches stay present, focused, and calm.

  • Mindful Communication: The way coaches communicate can be empowering or controlling.  The practice of active listening and non-judgmental communication are skills to help coaches tune in to their own emotions and become more aware of the emotions of their team members.

  • Mindful Team-Building: The program incorporates mindfulness practices into team-building exercises to help team members develop deeper connections and build a stronger sense of community. Some of the exercises we teach involve group meditations, mindful movement exercises, and team-building activities that promote mindfulness and self-awareness.

  • Mindful Performance Management: managing team performance can be very effective through the practice of mindfulness. Team members who set, mindful goals, monitor their progress and provide non-judge, mental, and supportive feedback provide the support that individual players need to grow into their optimal performance. 

  • Mindful Well-Being: Emphasis on the importance of mindfulness practices for coaches' well-being, providing strategies to manage stress, maintain work-life balance, and build resilience is key. Coaches lead by example and when they incorporate breathing exercises, and other mindfulness practices, they cultivate a positive and resilient mindset.
