Coaching Corps Training Program

We developed our coach trainings based on the latest research. We are constantly evolving our trainings to respond to new findings and to try new techniques that best support kids.

Coaching Corps provides a research-based curriculum for people to learn the healing-centered approach to coaching kids.

Here’s what distinguishes our trainings from others:

Evidence
Based

All our trainings are informed by the latest research.

Community
Context

Our trainings account for kids’ environments and experiences.

Quality
Trainers

Our trainers have experience in sports, coaching, and youth development.

Online
Options

Our digital platforms contain resources and tools so coaches can get trained anywhere, anytime.

Season-Long
Support

Access to our digital platforms provides active coaches with ongoing support and connection to fellow coaches.

We support people on their individual coach development journeys to take the trainings that interest them. 

However, we recommend taking the Coaching for Youth Development training first to create a foundational understanding of coaching kids.

Coaching for Youth Development Training

Prepares coaches to create a program where kids say: I am protected, I am seen, I have choices, I am capable, I matter, and what I do matters.

Coaching for Character Training

Prepares coaches to build social emotional skills in young people. These skills support kids to develop optimism, persistence, and the ability to regulate their emotions and behaviors.

Coming Soon! Coaching with Empathy

This training will teach coaches to create an empathetic environment and connections with kids. With deep listening and self-reflection, coaches will learn to develop strong relationships with kids and to create supportive and healing environments.

Coaching Corps Coach Training Certification Program

With the completion of each training, coaches automatically receive certification for that training, and become more prepared to support kids to learn, grow and thrive.
