HIGH FIVE Sport 4-hour on-demand 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.

This 4-hour on-demand 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 and 3 NCCP points.
