Level 2 SBYD Coach Certification

Level 2 Sports-Based Youth Development Coach Certification

The Up2Us Sports Level 2 Sports-Based Youth Development Coach Certification includes the following content:

Exploring Community Context

In this session, coaches explore the different elements of what makes their communities unique, challenging, and wonderful. Through conversations about the formal and informal elements of how a place works, coaches share how important it is to know the context of where they work.

Trauma and the Brain 101

Trauma-sensitive coaches have an understanding of how the human brain responds to stress and trauma, and can recognize that the behavior of young people tells a powerful story. This session clarifies the importance for trauma-sensitive coaches to understand that there’s more than what meets the eye when it comes to the reactions young people may have in our programs.

Trauma-Sensitive Coaching Skills Workshop

Because of their understanding of how the brain works, trauma-sensitive coaches believe in a growth-mindset: that all people can improve and grow throughout their lives and are not set in their abilities. This session introduces three of the core skills – looking and listening, asking questions, and offering specific praise – that make it possible for coaches to operationalize this knowledge with young people.

Competencies – After Level 2 Certification, coaches will be able to:

Describe the basics of trauma and the effects that it can have on youth.

Recognize behaviors consistent with trauma and situate those behaviors within the context and story of each child.

Recognize that challenging behavior is an issue of skill and not will.
