Boys and Sports

The Men’s Resource Center offers a one-hour presentation or half-day workshop on boys and sports in addition to consulting with coaches and athletic and recreational directors on how to improve sports and recreational programs for boys.

Sports provide a great context to train boys to be men. In fact, sports have historically been the training grounds to teach boys to be tough, powerful, and aggressive in order to conquer a competitive workplace, qualities that, at their worst, can lead to problems with domestic violence and anger management.

Positive coaching strategies

Boys and Sports discusses how men also need to be healthy humans, knowing how to be in respectful relationships and in safe and caring communities. While sports need to teach boys how to reach their athletic potential to pursue team goals, sports can also help influence boys to become successful partners, fathers, and citizens. The Men’s Resource Center teaches positive coaching strategies to empower coaches to be committed to mentoring athletes to be both winners on the field and in life.
