Coping and Support Training (CAST) provides a foundation for coaches and student athletes by building relationships, bolstering school attendance and achievement, discouraging substance use and developing skills to manage moods. CAST reinforces a variety of coping skills and teaches students to identify stressors and practice healthy responses.
Athletic coaches (including Coaches, Athletic Directors, Cheer Coaches, and others in athletic leadership positions) play an extremely influential role in the lives of student athletes. Because of these relationships, coaches are poised to positively influence how young men and women think and behave, both on and off the field.
CAST is carefully aligned with both Coaching Boys into Men and Athletes as Leaders, two national programs that prepare coaches and athletic program directors to use their positive influence to build character, promote healthy relationships, and prevent dating violence in middle and high school-aged male and female athletes.
