Coaching for Change for Community Coaches is an interactive course focused on those coaches who work with youth ages 10 to 14 in a community setting. While it has some similarities to the high school version, this course has been amended to reflect teachable moments and strategies that may occur with a younger group of girls and boys.
Coaches who have taken this course showed a marked increase in understanding the prevalence of relationship violence and 95% said they would recognize key indicators if one of their athletes was being affected. In terms of taking action, a 30% increase found 95% of coaches feeling more comfortable addressing inappropriate behavior such as sexist comments/jokes, emotional abuse and sexual harassment.
