Unlike certain sports, our Training Camp does not begin or end before the season starts. It is available throughout the year.
Working in conjunction with The Jason Foundation, a leader in the battle against youth suicide, coaches have access to training materials and modules that will educate their staff on youth suicide and the student-athlete.

JFI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES
The purpose of The Jason Foundation’s Professional Development Series is to help bring awareness to the impact of youth suicide in our communities. This program is not intended to make anyone an expert or counselor in youth suicide. The objective of the training is to provide you with the information, tools and resources that will help you to identify and assist at-risk youth.
Currently, there are numerous training modules available which discuss the staggering statistics associated with youth suicide, identify several signs of concern of possible suicidal ideation and explore resources to help a depressed or suicidal youth. The Online Library contains multiple two-hour trainings that extensively delve into aspects of youth suicide. The one-hour modules discuss how different topics relate to youth suicide.
