Play Like a Champion
Holy Family has partnered with Play Like a Champion Today, as a foundation for our athletic program. This Sports as Ministry Initiative was designed by the University of Notre Dame's Center for Ethical Education. The Play Like a Champion Today program offers a trainers-training model for athletic administrators, who then teach the mandatory parent and coaches training sessions each year, and ensure that program guidelines are understood and followed by student-athletes. All coaches are required to attend the sessions, and at least one parent per family for those students interested in playing Holy Family athletics is required.
Since 2006, the Play Like a Champion Today Educational Series has served over 100,000 coaches and parents through a network of 230+ trained-trainers in well over 50 cities throughout the United States and Canada. Play Like a Champion moves beyond the X's and O's of coaching to address the core elements of effective coaching: 1) motivation, 2) team-building, 3) leadership. Scientifically-based and ethically-directed, Play Like a Champion designs its educational programs to promote children's physical, social and moral development to last a lifetime.
