Up2Us Sports provides a variety of tools and trainings available at no cost to help further promote the SBYD movement and trauma-informed coaching.
SPORT AND TRAUMA PLAYBOOK
Up2Us Sports and Edgework Consulting work together to leverage the power of sports to help kids heal. Our aim is to create a sports environment that can encourage kids to be physically active, become more comfortable in their bodies, develop competence, and make meaningful connections with caring adults and supportive teammates.
SBYD Research brief
Sports-Based Youth Development is a methodology that uses sports to provide the support and opportunities youth need to be healthy contributing citizens now and as adults.
A TRAUMA-SENSITIVE SPORTS PRACTICE
With so much research emerging about the physical components of trauma recovery and new investment in creating trauma-sensitive environments, Up2Us Sports is committed to reimagining youth sports as part of the solution for all young people, especially those living in urban underserved communities.
HIGH IMPACT ATTRIBUTES
Research tells us that kids who develop these attributes do better in all parts of their lives. They are the things that kids learn while playing sports that help them do better in school, in a job or in their community. We believe all coaches should be trained to foster these High Impact Attributes.
