Nothing Heals Like Sport 1
The Center for Healing and Justice Through Sport reveals a new playbook - Nothing Heals Like Sport - A New Playbook for Coaches - to help coaches center their athletes and understand what happens as athletes develop.

Coaches worldwide are fighting a system that defines success in only one way - victories. Coaches exist in a structure that doesn’t invest in them, their development, or aid them in maximizing their impact.

The predominant examples they have to learn from are coaches on television, who are only shown in the most stressful and intense moments, moments that get generalized into all aspects of coaching.

Modern coaching has proven to all that the quality of the coach-athlete relationship is the primary predictor for an athlete’s performance. And without an expanded tool set, coaches can feel frustrated as they work to meet the diverse needs of their athletes.

Nothing Heals Like Sport - A New Playbook for Coaches gives coaches the tools that help them center their athletes and understand what happens as athletes develop. These are the tools to support athletes through adversity, whether that adversity comes only on the court or is part of their athlete’s lived experience.

These are the tools that help coaches, so coaches can then help athletes.

The Center for Healing and Justice Through Sport's partnership with Dr. Bruce D. Perry M.D., Ph.D., and the Neurosequential Network fueled the development of the playbook.

A copy of the playbook is available in our Resource Library.
