Event Details

 up2us is hosting a free training for all coaches to address the issues of violence, abuse and inequality in our community. Together we explore how we can ‘TEAM UP’ to bring about cultural change. This program focuses on adults as allies and how this important relationship can inspire our youth to change attitudes and behaviors that maintain violence, abuse and inequality. The Lake County ROE of education is offering 3 x CPDUs for this training.

 Session One: up2us -Transforming bystanders into upstanders

up2us is an interactive program that:

-          unveils the societal influences that contribute to a culture where violence, abuse and inequality is tolerated.

-          Teaches QUESTION •SUPPORT •INTERRUPT as a tool to change that culture for the better. 

-          lays the foundation for conversations about what it means to have a healthy self-image specifically regarding gender in our society today.

 Session Two: Coaching Boys into Men*

*this program is beneficial for and applicable to both boys and girls

We teach players that honor and respect are keys to a team playing a game. How can we not teach them that honor and respect are even more important in their lives”-Tubby Smith-head coach University of Minnesota.

CBIM equips coaches with tools to help young athletes build respectful, non-violent relationships and through communication to achieve the following goals:

-          learn to treat women with respect

-          understand that violence never equals strength

-          use this knowledge to become role models

You will be provided with a CBIM toolkit
