Strengthen Your Sports Team's Effectiveness and Teamwork
The Challenge Day experience is perfect for sports teams that can benefit from building greater cohesion, trust, and empowerment among athletes and between athletes and coaches. The performance of sports teams can be plagued by the same issues that affect academic success in schools--separation, isolation, emotional and physical trauma, racism, bullying, and violence.
For 30 years, Challenge Day has taught that true connection comes through transparency, understanding, and a sense of belonging. Like our traditional Challenge Day program, the Sports Team Challenge Day features interactive learning and connection exercises, hip music, and the powerful life stories and lessons of our highly trained facilitators who demonstrate what’s possible when living outside our comfort zones, accepting and caring for others, and living an authentic life.

"I hosted Challenge Days in 4 different school districts, 7 high schools and 3 middles schools. I saw positive changes in all the schools. Fortuna High School and Eureka High School had Challenge Day on multiple years. Fortuna High School had it 4 years in a row as part of the Freshman class initiation into high school.
The school made a culture change. ... There were so many good things that happened after Challenge Day. This program is one of the best programs there is to help a school change their culture of violence, gangs, racism, and bullying. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give a testimonial."
