Whether we look at statistics on adolescent depression, anxiety, suicide, violence, addiction, the data is clear that it is very difficult to be a young person today. Our community needs the coaching platform to be used for the betterment of the lives for our youth now more than ever. For athletics to be the vehicle of healthy human development, we need to improve the ways we equip and support our coaching community. The goal of The Coaches' Leadership Academy is to rejuvenate the athletic community in Middle Tennessee by providing the social and emotional training that every coach needs to use his or her influence for good.
Our campaign goal is to help raise money for three 2019 sessions of The Coaches' Leadership Academy. After going through the program, each coach will be better equipped and supported to positived impact on average 75 kids per year.
