5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
2-4-1 and Active City Hartford are teaming up with the Center for Healing and Justice through Sport to offer a free coaching clinic! The clinic is open to coaches of all levels – youth through college – and promises to be an incredibly informative and interactive workshop.
The clinic will be held at Classical High School, 85 Woodland St, Hartford, CT 06105
CHJS’ core training explores the impact of trauma on the brain, behavior, and performance of young people and athletes. This interactive session provides participants with an understanding of how coaches and parents can leverage sport to help athletes heal and thrive. Attendees will walk away as brain-based coaches with more skills to add to their toolbox to create healing-centered sport environments for all athletes.
Our lead trainers for this workshop will be CHJS Founder, Megan Bartlett and Lead Consultant, Anthony Andino (read bios below)
THE CENTER FOR HEALING AND JUSTICE THROUGH SPORT BELIEVES:
Sport is drastically underutilized as an intentional strategy to support healing, build resilience, and address issues of systemic injustice. The Center for Healing and Justice through Sport (CHJS) was created to do just that.
Sport is uniquely situated to help kids heal and thrive.
In order to see the power of sport in action, we must redesign the delivery of all youth sports, everywhere, using the knowledge and research from experts to maximize its inherent developmental and healing qualities.
A healing sports system only works when there is a just society around it.
We must work inside and outside the sports system to change societal conditions that prevent kids, families, and communities from accessing and participating in high-quality, healing sports.
