Two great resources for coaches and teachers when dealing with student athletes and their families:
Make the Call:
Make the Call is a values-based ethical decision-making module for 15- to 18-year-olds who participate in sport or are part of a Grade 11 or 12 physical and health education program. The module is composed of an interactive e-learning course and a set of complementary classroom tools. Make the Callis available in English and French.
This program is designed for students in the Train to Compete stage of Canadian Sport for Life’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model. It is at this stage, that athletes begin serious competition, and commit to high-volume and high-intensity training throughout the year. Because of the physical and social demands on these athletes, nutrition, sport psychology, and recovery become extremely important. Make the Call offers a values-based model to help both the athletes themselves, as well as their peers, navigate the difficult decisions ahead of them.
The Ride Home:
How we talk to our kids about sports is how we keep our kids in sports
