HIGH FIVE Sport training helps coaches understand healthy child development, what motivates children to participate in sport, and what strategies help them want to continue to play. The training addresses the key barriers girls face in long-term participation in sport programs. These barriers include lack of quality, enjoyment, and confidence. The training uses the five principles of HIGH FIVE—Caring Leader, Participation, Mastery, Play, and Friends—to address these barriers and encourage lasting participation in sports.

This 4-hour training is designed for coaches, managers, and trainers and is based on best practices for sport leadership. All participants receive a certificate upon completion of the training.
