DVN partners with First Baptist Athletics

INDIANAPOLIS, March 6, 2014 – Today, the Domestic Violence Network (DVN) is pleased to announce a partnership with First Baptist Athletics to educate youth on healthy relationships. DVN will be training the coaches of the baseball teams for First Baptist Athletics on the Coaching Boys into Men curriculum, developed by Futures Without Violence.

Coaching Boys into Men is a comprehensive violence prevention curriculum for coaches and their athletes. Athletic coaches play an extremely influential and unique role in the lives of young men; often serving as a parent or mentor to the boys they coach. Because of these special relationships, coaches are poised to positively influence how young men think and behave both on, and off, the field.

Coaching Boys into Men consists of a series of coach-to-athlete “teach-easy tactics and trainings” that illustrate ways to model respect and promote healthy relationships and choices among youth. The Coaching Boys into Men Card Series instructs coaches on how to incorporate themes associated with teamwork, integrity, fair play, and respect into their daily practice and routine.
